Did you know that we have the largest outdoor play areas in New South Wales?
At Erina kindergarten, we offer families a unique experience by offering separated large external shaded play areas according to age group. This allows staff the opportunity to work more one on one with age-specific children and cater specifically to individual age groups needs. This also avoids accidents with smaller children being hurt by older children who can sometimes be unintentionally rough in the playground. We are the only childcare on the Central Coast to offer this to families and our families always see this as an advantage over other centres where children of different age groups are placed together in a large play area. Our separate play areas are purpose-built to ensure your child is in a safe environment that fosters a sense of discovery and adventure – where they create their own stories, build relationships, solve problems and refine motor skills.
At Erina kindergarten, we believe play is an integral part of learning, and at Erina kindergarten, our large play areas are constructed and customised to promote imaginative and interactive play. We offer lots of daily diversified purpose built activities to engage children’s imagination. As part our strategy to continually improve we are also currently making some much-needed improvements to our large outdoor playground areas. We will be updating all external areas to maximise your child’s imaginative & interactive play experience complete with interactive musical instruments, teepees, vegetable gardens, interactive water features, sandpits and mud kitchens plus much more!
We will also be looking at introducing some more barnyard fun as a major feature of the centre e.g. chickens, guinea pigs. We already have a very special & spoilt rabbit in our preschool area which is adored by both staff and pre-schoolers alike! Children are encouraged to participate with the animals & be involved in their care – developing a sense of responsibility and cooperation.
As Erina kindergarten has the largest kindergarten footprint on land in NSW we want to enhance the use our outdoor areas so to ensure all the children in our care are encouraged to be active and healthy!
Erina kindergarten promotes active healthy children and engaging children’s imagination through interactive play! Come & see for yourself!!
