Lower Plenty

Our Centre

Lower Plenty Kindergarten is a place for children to learn, laugh and grow!

At Lower Plenty Kindergarten, we believe that children learn best through play, discovery and being actively involved in their learning. We proudly create a learning environment that is welcoming, safe, fun and is in harmony with the natural environment.

Offering play-based 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs, at Lower Plenty your child will learn, play, explore and have fun.

Our Kindergarten is family-centred and focuses on the connections that children have with their family and community. We work in partnership with parents to help create the right learning environment for your child.
