Our Learning Programmes
Our MindChamps programmes are based in Australian research and were created for the children of the 21st century. Using Crafted Play, our Annandale Champs engage in a variety of structured and child led learning experiences. Our environment is split into 6 distinct learning zones, created with the children to reflect their learning.
When young Champs are given the opportunity to guide their own experiences, they become excited about education. Our learning programme embraces the Champs’ interests and skills, utilising the learning potential in everyday activities. Utilising Sensory, Motor, Intellectual, Linguistic, Emotional and Social aspects of play, we teach our Champs about themselves and their place in the world around them.
In addition to our early learning programmes, our preschool curriculum incorporates the MindChamps break through Reading Programme. Through theatrical strategies, our reading programme has been developed by experts to encourage a love of reading and storytelling. With Australia’s low early literacy rates, we are barracking back to foster a connection with the written word which will benefit our Champs for the rest of their lives.
The 3-Minds Approach
Just as the Froebel and Montessori approaches were developed in the 19th century and the “Thinking Curriculum” of the Waldorf-Steiner and Reggio Emilia methods were products of the 20th century, the MindChamps Early Learning & Preschool’s 3-Mind Approach is the education model developed for the 21st century. Our unique pedagogy is based on The Champion, Learning and Creative Minds.
The Champion Mind teaches children resilience and the ability to overcome adversity and thrive.
The Learning Mind concentrates on teaching children HOW to learn and not WHAT to learn.
The Creative Mind nurtures our Champs abilities to think outside of the box and see the world from multiple perspectives.
Combined, our Champs are equipped with the tools they need to flourish in the unknown future that lies ahead.

“I’m very pleased with my daughter’s intellectual and creative development since starting school at MindChamps. The teachers are so caring and open to exchange information and ideas with all the parents, but most importantly my little one really enjoys being there."

"My husband and I are very grateful for this wonderful school. Our kids do not speak English as a first language and despite the language barrier, they absolutely love going to school. They are always coming home with new words, phrases and songs learned at school. Indeed, my children's happiness at school could not be possible without the love, care and devotion of each and every teacher."
