Literacy, Language and Learning
At Mindarie Keys Early Learning School we have a strong focus on early literacy as part of our curriculum. We hold regular guest reading sessions and invite families to come in to the service and read to the children for special events throughout the year such as Book Week. We hold incursions with the local Clarkson library and our Kindy children visit the Mindarie Primary School library as part of our School Readiness program.
Families with children enrolled at our service are invited to make use of our free Community Library, containing a variety of age-appropriate children’s books that can be borrowed at any time to help encourage regular reading at home.
Speech development is a common topic we are asked about and we regularly invite speech pathologists and other childhood development specialists to come in to the service and speak to children and parents. Our educational curriculum also incorporates understanding and learning of Keyword Signing (sign language).
