Yes, at our Bambini Early Learning Centres we have a funded four year old kindergarten program and employ a kindergarten teacher who holds a Bachelor of Education. Our Kindergarten programs are the same as a council run kindergartens and private schools. The difference is we operate from 7.30am to 6pm (Parkville 6.30am – 6.30pm) Monday to Friday and are open 50 weeks a year and open all school holidays catering to all family and work situations.
At our Bambini Early Learning centres we group children based on their ages and according to current regulations on child to educator ratios. We believe that children learn best when they are surrounded by peers of similar ages and stages of development and growth.
Age groups from 3 months to 12 months are placed in rooms accommodating 8 children and 2 educators. From 12 months to 36 months, room sizes could accommodate 8 to 12 children with a maximum of three educators per room.
Our 3 and 4 year old age groups are designated to rooms which could accommodate a minimum of 10 children to a maximum of 20 children with two educators.
