An approved kindergarten program for ages 3 - school age

What is Kindy?

Traditionally, kindergarten is a learning program that is delivered by a qualified early childhood teacher, typically 15 hours a week, 40 weeks a year, for children in the year before school. In a long day care setting, we expand the traditional kindergarten program to include learning and care for all the hours that our centre is open.

Our bachelor trained early childhood teachers provide a 7 1/2 hour daily kindergarten program with our team of educators caring for children outside of this time.

The Learning Journey

Our daily program is aligned with the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline. In this year children enjoy the freedom to follow their own interests and explore their creativity under the guidance of tertiary-educated professionals.


In this special year, we give children opportunities to:

  • use language to communicate ideas, feelings and needs
  • make friends and cooperate with other children
  • become more independent and confident in their abilities
  • develop self-discipline
  • creatively express ideas and feelings.
  • identify, explore and solve problems
  • develop reading, writing and numeracy skills.

The rhythm of the day

Children participate in teacher-led and child-initiated activities that allows for indoor and outdoor learning, individual play or projects, small and whole group activities.

Transitions for morning and afternoon tea, lunch and rests provide children with responsibility and structure to their day. Throughout the year our teachers will be developing skills that support the children in their journey to formal learning.

Our Kindy program allows for a holistic approach to learning which may include:

  • Group learning
  • Calendar and seasonal events
  • Role play
  • Music and movement
  • Physical and perceptual motor programs
  • Creative arts
  • Acknowledgement to country
  • Bush Kindy
  • Sports
  • Language with the ELLA (Early Learning Language Australia) program
  • STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities
  • Community excursions
  • Sustainability through gardening
  • Cooking
  • Reading, writing and storytelling


Our additional Bush Kindy program provides children with the opportunity to learn about our natural world. This more physically challenging environment allows children to develop fine and gross motor skills, which are vital for their journey into formal schooling.
Problem-solving, creative thinking, indigenous culture, real tool work and team-building are just some of the skills learnt in our Bush Kindy program.

Parents will have an opportunity to meet with the kindergarten team to learn more about their child’s program and how they can support their child’s journey to school.
