I have the choice of 2 I like:
* first is non profit, recommended to me by a couple of mums.
-Has aporox 14 kids in 3.5+ age group room
-Has kinder teacher
- The kinder teacher was keen to talk to me
- BIG yard that doesn't divide age groups and all the rooms open up to this yard (I'm more concerned about supervision, even though she told me carers are always out there)
-Children will be allowed to play outside anytime, so I'm more concerned about the structure of the program and preparing him for school.
* the other one is private. ( I don't know anyone who has been there)
-Run by kinder teacher too, approx 20, up to I think 25 if numbers reach captivity in room (with other carers too)
-The kinder teacher didn't seem that interested to talk to me when I visited, maybe because she was busy with the kids?
-Yard is separate to babies
-Im pretty sure the kids will only be allowed out as a group at set times (eg after morning tea) and also there was a program book listing what they do throughout the day. (eg story time)
