Gurri (Kangaroo) Room, Maryborough Childcare Centre
Age Group: 3 years – 5 years (Kindergarten Room)
Class Size: 16
In Dja Dja Wurrung Language, Gurri means Kangaroo which is the Kindergarten Funded room for our 3-5 year olds. Children of this age have rapid cognitive development and play becomes more complex. The children in this room want to try new experiences, seek to become self-reliant and want to become independent decision makers.
Educators support this energy and independence by providing experiences to challenge thinking and this includes participation within the School Preparation Program.
At this stage, we focus on activities that assist your child in establishing a strong foundation of social skills and an independent inquiring mind, coupled with fine motor skills and a basic introduction to concepts of numeracy and literacy. This formative period sets them up with the perfect platform from which to grow in future years.

Indoor and Outdoor Program
