The best early education and childcare for preschoolers aged 4-5 years in the Sydney CBD

We take a holistic approach when creating preschool programs that incorporate a comprehensive range of educational and interpersonal development. We believe that by teaching children a range of skills that are transferrable across all contexts, we can build a strong foundation for learning that prepares them for their transition into school, and the next stages of their lives.

Our Preschool Program covers all your child’s developmental needs

Our high-quality preschool program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and specifically designed to help your child start school with social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills that will help them thrive.

The transition to school program at Little Kingdom replaces the need for a separate prep year. After completing our high quality program, your preschooler will be ready for school. Our program incorporates both physical and psychological aspects of learning and supports your child through nurturing and trusting relationships. Our experienced and qualified teachers together with our resourced and safe environments, reinforce each child’s development via focus on four key development areas.

FAQs

Typically, a preschooler is four to five years old. Children at this age are naturally curious, making it an ideal stage in their development to enter a preschool program and start learning the essential skills that they will need when entering formal schooling. Skills such as interacting with others and effective communication go a long way in helping your child to transition happily into the next phase of their growth. 

 

Here at Little Kingdom, we offer care and education to pre-primary school-aged children. If your child is not yet at preschool age, we have various programs to suit younger stages of development.
