Drouin (Adam Court)
Kindergarten

Our Centre

At Drouin Kindergarten (Adam Court), we strive to provide a friendly and open environment which is inclusive of all children and where families feel welcomed and valued. We acknowledge the importance of forming successful relationships with children, families and the community which optimise positive outcomes for each child.

We provide a play-based learning environment that reflects the children’s interests and ideas, provides open ended and creative experiences and caters for children’s individual needs. Our environment is child focused, and rich in a range of materials, resources and opportunities to encourage children to engage and excel as confident learners.
