Queensland Registered Kindergarten Program
Our program is delivered by a registered Early Childhood Teacher and has been proven to give children the best head start to the prep year.
Our kindergarten program has been approved by the Queensland Government and is based on the Queensland kindergarten learning guideline. The program is also in line with the National Early Years Framework which supports children’s learning in a variety of ways. We believe learning should be fun and meaningful and therefore we offer your child an enriched environment so they can initiate and maintain their own learning.
The target age group for kindergarten pre-prep program are children who turn four years old by 30 June in the year they attend (i.e. children in the year immediately prior to the prep year) and attend a minimum for 2 days a week.
Our role is to ensure that each child cultivates a lifelong love of learning, reaching their potential, that when they leave our service they are prepared for school and later life.
