PreKindy Program 2 years +

At Monkey Bars, we offer our Pre-Kindy Program at our state of the art centre in Canning Vale and also a full day option in Thornlie:

Monkey Bars will always strive to provide high quality Care and Education that meets the needs of the families in the community. It is our commitment to work side by side with parents and share the role of caring and educating their children at this most important stage inlife; the early years.

Monkey Bars operates under the National Quality Standard Assessment and Rating goverened by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). For more information on the Assessment and Rating process please visit

Our program is focused on the educational principles of the Early Years Learning Framework and the principles that underpin the Reggio Emilia approach—an early childhood education approach to learning that “is committed to the creation of a learning environment that will enhance and facilitate children's construction of his or her own powers of thinking through the combination of all the expressive, communicative and cognitive languages”.

With a program that is designed to encourage natural learning styles, we place emphasis on providing children with a fun, stimulating environment conducive to exploring the power of “play” while still preparing them for their journey into "school" with our balanced "school readiness" program. Children are supported in their learning environment and are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of individual activities and collaborative group projects incorporating the arts, construction, dramatic play,  and science experiments to name a few.

Our Program Objectives:

  • to provide your child with a variety of experiences that extend their own natural learning style
  • to encourage each child’s individual social, emotional, cognitive and physical development
  • to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment that is conducive to learning
  • to build on the foundations that your child has discovered as part of our “Play|Laugh|Learn” program
  • to help prepare each child for a smooth transition into formal schooling
