We are pleased to welcome you to Lutheran Ormeau Rivers District School’s Kindergarten. We are at the very foundation of the LORDS motto of ‘Growing Side by Side’. Here we want the children to experience growth through play, through encounters with nature, through laughter, through character building and through the many facets of experiences in learning. These challenges and adventures will form the basis on which leadership, opportunities, respect, diligence and service will grow during the schooling years. Kindergarten is your child’s first step into formal education and we plan to ensure it is an enjoyable and rewarding year.
Our youngest students are able to start their LORDS journey at LORDS Little Wonders. Our kindergarten program is offered on a five day fortnight and within a beautiful secure setting provide the following:
- Participation in a quality early learning education program delivered by a qualified teacher
- A smooth transition to the Prep environment
- A focus on developing students’ innate creativity and curiosity in a range of rich learning environments
- An early learning focussed outdoor environment to enhance opportunities for gross and fine motor skills development
Kindy programs are taught by a qualified Early Childhood Teacher/Service Leader and an Educator (Teacher Assistant). The Service Leader and Early Childhood Teacher, Miss Sarah Matjac, has 17 years experience teaching in Kindy, Preschool and Prep and holds a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education qualification. Sarah was the recipent of the 2014 Rolph Mayer Award for Teacher Excellence.
