As with most local preschools in and around Blakehurst, The Berry Patch preschool centre operates during school terms. Schooldays and day care hours fall within a 7AM-6PM schedule. We treat holidays as special occasions and celebrate them by holding ‘colour’ days and ‘dress-up days’. Parents will be given notice of these events in advance.
Shaping School-Ready Kids
Watch your children grow in confidence as they experience various ways of learning at The Berry Patch Preschool Centre. We do this by incorporating meaningful, challenging and stimulating experiences to extend children’s current knowledge and meet their needs. This gives them the best start in their early years’ education.
In addition, children are encouraged to participate in arts and crafts and activities such as name writing and patterning using threading and peg boards. School readiness is also achieved by the use of computers, which older children are free to use. The Blakehurst preschool centre also holds cooking lessons and science experiments.
Each child will have developmental summaries their show their progress. These are completed by their teacher several times over the year. A transition to school statement is completed for the children who are leaving for big school.
Families receive a USB at the end of each year for each child in attendance containing observations, developmental summaries and photos.
Proper sit-down interviews are held in either July or August for children aged 2-5 years. This is the best time for parents and teachers to discuss students’ progress. However, parents are welcome to speak to our Blakehurst preschool teachers at any time.
