Our Early Learning Centre offers free 3 and 4 year old kindergarten programs for 15 hours a week, commencing in 2024.
Children are able to attend for just the kinder sessions or to stay with us for more learning and fun in our Before and After Kinder Care program.
Registrations are currently being accepted!
Our program is play based and child centred. We use current ideas and experiences initiated by the children in their play and build on this learning in further play development.
Two separate kindergarten rooms open out to a wonderful natural outside play space, with specially designed equipment to encourage discovery, imagination and activity. There is plenty of space to create, investigate and to play collaboratively, across our multi-level playground.
Whether it’s feeling the breeze rush past on the swings, excavating sand, creating imaginary worlds for dinosaurs, experimenting with water flows, dancing on the raised platform or running on lush grass, children will want to do it all! Our new playground has been planned to maximise fun, play and adventure.
Our program embraces the joy of the everyday, of the small successes, of the big milestones and everything in between. Our kindergarten is a great place for growing and developing the skills for learning for life!
