Bentons Square Preschool is a modern and vibrant preschool located alongside Bentons Square Community Centre in Mornington. This busy and friendly centre provides a secure learning environment for 3-5-year-olds, which is enriched by our dedicated and caring staff. There is much research to support the fact that in the early years play is the way in which children learn best and it is, therefore, the foundation of programs here at Bentons Square. The service work in partnership with families to nurture each child’s individuality, sense of worth, independence and resilience, assisting them in developing into enthusiastic, lifelong learners. Programs are developed by close observation of the children and are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the children as individuals and also as part of a group. The Early Years Learning Framework and Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework guide and inform their practice. Two of the four year old groups have developed a connection with a local aged care residence. The children visit, chat and sing with the elders. The evidence around how beneficial this is for both young and old is a delight to watch. Most importantly they want the children who join them at Bentons Square Preschool to gain a passion for life and learning AND TO HAVE FUN! In 2021, Bentons Square Butterflies will be undertaking a Bush Kinder program.
