“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”- Albert Einstein

At Big Foot Preschool we believe that the best means to help children be ready for their future is to teach them to take small steps to a big future. That stands for offering them every opportunity to watch and learn to build critical thinking skills to empower their minds. We provide the tools and resources necessary to ensure that our teachers are able to bring out the best in your child whilst they have fun learning.

We approach teaching and learning in a holistic way, therefore our curriculum encourages purposeful play. Our curriculum is unparalleled because we realize that a child's learning abilities are like their DNA - it takes on attributes based on the child. Based on Howard Gardner's 8 multi intelligences (Visuals-Spatial, Bodily Kinaesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Linguistic, Logical-Mathematical and Naturalist) and an Australian methodology that puts heavy importance on purposeful play, the curriculum and teaching practices at Big Foot Preschool initiate the child's potential for reading while the characteristics of play are maintained.

Interdisciplinary teaching ensures that our kids are able to learn concepts, absorb knowledge and acquire ideas from more than one area of learning and purposeful play, that is kept structured through a specific theme each term.

A child's readiness for school is synchronized by their emotional, physical and social advancement, thus purposeful play at Big Foot Preschool allows children to be engaged and motivated in an environment that allows them to cast all their skills in context every day.

Our Philosophy

Kids love challenges and don't recognize the meaning of failure. They are constantly drawn and prompted to attempt new things and as pre-school educators our core role is to support that strength of character.Children love to learn by taking action. Every facet of a child's learning journey is encouraged and challenged at Big Foot Preschool. Our core philosophy works on the premise of Respect, Integrity, Cognition, Empathy and Self-Esteem. (R.I.C.E.S). Each day our teachers who are at the core of what we do make the ultimate difference as key influences. Our professional teachers have the dependability to ensure that your children learn in a safe, caring and approachable environment.

Our attitude towards educating young ones is like the anatomy of a foot, which is supported separately by each of our toes; likewise at Big Foot Preschool we are capable to work as a cohesive movement towards enriching your child's foundation for a future rich with dreams, strength of character and success.
