Languages

We are part of the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) Early Childhood Language Program. Our kindergarten offers a Mandarin Language Program. Mandarin is incorporated into everyday learning experiences to give children meaningful opportunities to use the language themselves. Children learn this language through play, art, music, singing, dancing, and stories. A qualified Mandarin teacher delivers the language program in partnership with the other staff at the kinder. Learning in languages other than English helps children to improve their overall literacy and understanding of how language in general works. There are many benefits to children learning in another language at a young age, including:

Our educators are trained to use some key word signing. We can also have communication translated and interpreted for families who speak languages other than English.

Nominated Supervisor

Letitia McBean

Hi, I’m Letitia, the Nominated Supervisor at St. Andrew’s Uniting Kindergarten Sunbury.  I am fortunate to be part of a lovely, dedicated team at our beautiful service that we are so proud of.

I have a Bachelor of Education, and a Graduate degree in Early Childhood Teaching. I was initially a primary school teacher and have been a Kindergarten Teacher for over 12 years. 

I absolutely love my job and feel so fortunate as a teacher to help children grow and develop and give them the best possible start to their learning journey.

At St. Andrew’s kinder, we provide a play-based curriculum, where children are safe to explore, play and learn in a space that gives everyone an equal start in their educational journey. We encourage children to be the best they can be and help them discover their individual ways of belonging, being and becoming.

I enjoy getting to know each child individually and building positive relationships with each family.
