Our pre-kinder program is run in our Moonglade Studio with a strong focus on social, physical and emotional development. We encourage curiosity and eagerness to learn through creative methods such as art, music and ‘hands on’ experiences, focusing in the second half of the year on skill building in readiness for kindergarten the following year.
Interesting and engaging resources and materials help facilitate and encourage children to engage in play, which is how they learn best. Many opportunities arise throughout each day where the group comes together to share understandings and ask questions as well as share information.
Pre Kinder Curriculum
Bachelor Qualified Teachers
Our Pre-Kinder program is delivered by Bachelor qualified staff that are well versed in early childhood education best practice, sharing Aurora’s commitment to nurturing your child in a safe, supportive learning environment.
Research has found that when a child has a positive transition period in their early years, they are more likely to view and handle transitions positively in their later lives. Our school readiness program prepares your child to transition seamlessly and successfully from kindergarten to school and lays the foundation for a lifetime of positive learning experiences.
Our mentor program runs between our pre-kinder and kinder rooms. Each child is paired with someone who can mentor and guide them through social play and activities. Children gain an insight into how the Kinder room is run, creating capable and confident learners when entering the Kinder environment in the following year.

Hear what our clients have to say about us
“My daughter has never been happier! The staff at Aurora are second to none. They are always happy to take my calls, answer all of my questions and care for all the kids like they’re their own children. The curriculum for learning is amazing, it’s culturally inclusive and wholistic. I would highly recommend Aurora.”
“My son has been attending the “Seamist Studio” at Aurora since April 2018 and we have been so happy with every aspect of his care and our experience with Aurora. The staff are professional, friendly and caring and I’m always made to feel welcome to ask any questions or advice if needed. They use Kinderloop to give updates on what the children have been up to as well as their own app to keep a daily record of all your child’s daily habits such as what they’ve eaten, nappy changes and naps etc. I would definitely recommend Aurora and look forward to sending my son there again next year.”
