Kindy at MC!
… a journey of adventure and possibilities
Welcome to Kindy 2023 at Macquarie College!
Hello and welcome to Macquarie College. Finding the right school for your child to commence Kindergarten at is a really important decision for your family. We want to support you to make the best choice for your child. We believe that the research based Kindergarten program at Macquarie College, along with our highly experienced teachers, offers a solid foundation for our little friends as they begin their learning journey.
We would love for you to have a look through this page and perhaps join in on one of our small group tour mornings to start your child’s educational journey at MC.
MC is a leading faith-based school in the Newcastle and Hunter Region for students from Preschool through to Year 12. As Kindergarten is a time of discovery and learning—we provide a wide variety of innovative opportunities that stimulate and engage.
Our Kindergarten program focuses on developing core literacy, numeracy and cognitive skills in a fun, play-based setting.
Kindergarten students enjoy Bible stories and songs that share God’s love. We adopt pedagogical approaches, including direct instruction and open-ended investigations, to meet the individual needs of each student. We embrace movement and play, with Kindy learners wearing their sports uniform every day.
Research tells us that play-based learning stimulates and enhances students’ physical, social and academic development. Outdoor play, movement activities and hands-on experiences through play-based learning results in growth mindsets such as trial and error, teamwork, problem solving and creativity. Our young ones are so engaged with the fun activities throughout their day, that learning and success come naturally.
Hello there and welcome to Macquarie College. I believe that Macquarie College offers academic excellence in an environment of faith and nurture. We endeavor to give our young people opportunities and experiences to help them become the best versions of themselves.
Macquarie College is a future focused learning community where Kindergarten students are given a wide variety of innovative opportunities that will mean that their Kindergarten learning experiences provide a solid foundation for the years ahead.
We’d love to show you around our campus and talk to you more about our Kindergarten program and other opportunities at our College. You are welcome to join one of our small group tour mornings or give our Registrar a call with any questions you may have on 02 4954 6222.
