Our Program and Approach
At KU Revesby, we aim to provide a learning environment where children feel confident in building relationships with peers and adults, and are active participants in their learning throughout the day.
We are proud of our reputation within the local community of providing rich education and care that concentrates on individual children in a family-focussed and supportive way.
Our centre is a welcoming and nurturing space where each child is immersed in a rich tapestry of educationally interactive experiences – a space where children are supported to be their own, unique selves, growing and developing a sense of belonging and empowerment.
Our program offers children the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of learning experiences and activities, each specifically designed to promote children’s confidence as capable, active participants in their own learning. Children are presented with a range of activities including gardening, arts and crafts, music and movement, physical play, block building, sand and water play, science experiments, early numeracy activities such as counting and measurement, and early literacy activities such as reading, drawing and writing.
We have a transition to school program that focuses on the children’s social and emotional development and capabilities to become passionate life-long learners, through experiences that give them the skills to enter school in a positive and confident way.
We encourage family participation at the centre, acknowledging that each family has the opportunity to build partnerships with the preschool by sharing skills, time and feedback with the staff and children, bringing your family into the life of our centre.
In addition to the high quality well-rounded programs we offer, all KU centres are also encouraged to develop an area of specialisation.
At KU Revesby, our special specialisation is sustainability and the natural environment.
We incorporate this into our program through activities such as gardening, caring for our environment and scientific exploration of the natural world.
We feel that the children benefit from this specialisation because they are the future carers of our world and need to be given the opportunities to explore, reflect and discover the natural world around them through play experiences and intentional teaching.
Our centre has been independently assessed by the Department of Education NSW under the National Quality Standards, and are proud to be rated as Exceeding the National Quality Standard.
However what matters most is what our families think...
“My children have been attending KU Revesby Preschool for several years now and I cannot fault them! The staff are warm, friendly and engaging and my children have flourished in their care. Each day I hear wonderful stories from both the carers and my children about the exciting things they have done and new things they have learnt and experienced while at Preschool! Our children love attending KU Revesby and we highly recommend the centre and its fantastic staff!” - KU Revesby Parent
“Our family loves KU Revesby. It is a warm, caring and safe environment. My daughter has enjoyed every moment.” - KU Revesby Parent
Each KU centre is unique. The best outcomes for children are created within relationships and interactions between children and staff, and children and their families, not within four walls. We work hard to create beautiful, interesting, homelike learning environments for children - whatever our setting.
KU Revesby is a preschool service located in Revesby, catering for 20 children a day. There are large open spaces that are well-designed and a shady playground in a natural, landscaped setting. Our building has air-conditioning, with two large playrooms containing a wide and diverse range of resources that encourage play based discovery and learning.
Our playground is designed to allow children to explore nature and discover the natural environment. We want children to be able to dig in the mud, climb trees, discover and learn about insects and enjoy connecting with nature. The many activities we offer enable children to immerse themselves in the natural elements of their surroundings and feel inspired to create, imagine and play.
