3 & 4 Year Old
Kinder Programs

We offer free 3 and 4 year old kindergarten, with our programs running 15 hours a week.


Healthy eating, oral hygiene and sun smart awareness are actively promoted. We focus on keeping our staff and children safe outside, and are official participants in the SunSmart program.

Community Excursions

We value the involvement of the community in our children’s education and take part in incursions and excursions. These extend children’s learning about themselves and the world around them.

Diverse Curriculum

Our curriculum supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative learning. We also celebrate multiculturalism and include a variety of cultural events throughout the year.

Storypark App

Storypark connects our educators with families, 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 Preschool’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.

The Y has been delivering Early Learning Programs for over 20 years and is passionate about creating safe, fun, educational environments where children can thrive.
