Teaching & Learning

Sunrise strives to promote the total growth and development of each child and endeavours to create a suitable environment for this purpose.

Walk-about

DSCN6829 (1)

As part of daily kindergarten programme, we go for walkabouts to our local parks & streets.  While there, we can play, have morning tea, running races, play with balls and other spontaneous activities suggested by children or educators.  Children become familiar with the community, safety, road rules, friendship and of course our local parks and gardens.

We generally leave Sunrise between 10.30-11am and come back between 12.30-12.45pm – however on hotter days, we leave straight after Morning Circle, to beat the heat.

Here is an outline of the Sunrise programme on a typical day:
