Literacy development

At Springwood Kindergarten, the development of children’s emerging literacy understandings is embedded within all aspects of the program.

Children are supported through interactions, activities and play to explore literacy concepts in personally meaningful ways and engage positively with a variety of print and multimedia texts and the arts.

They are encouraged to:
  • Explore symbols and patterns in language (eg. noticing signs in the environment)
  • Engage with a variety of texts for different purposes (eg. reading books about plant growth when planting flowers and vegetables in the Kindy veggie patch)
  • Build confidence and interest in exploring reading and writing behaviours (eg. taking ownership of their work by writing their name on drawings/paintings)
