3 & 4 Year Old
Kinder Programs

We offer free high quality 3 and 4 year old programs in an inclusive and welcoming environment.


Excursions and incursions are a key part of our curriculum. Venturing out into the local area allows children to explore the world around them, and feel a part of their community.

Kitchen Garden

Our Kindergarten has its own vegetable garden for growing, harvesting and cooking our produce. We promote healthy eating and teach our children about the importance of healthy foods

Music & Movement

Children can freely express themselves, develop and learn in a fun way in our music and movement program. The program is intertwined with the indoor and outdoor environments.

Storypark App

Storypark connects our educators with parents, providing the ability to share news, service updates, progress and exciting moments from kinder to home!

Safeguarding Children
and Young People

We pride ourselves on our commitment to the safeguarding of children and young people, providing safe and fun environments for children to flourish.


Our kindergarten’s philosophy guides our teaching and approach to early learning. It is informed by the National Quality Framework and underpins all our service’s operations and daily practices.
