In the heart of our family-friendly hill suburb, Penny, Linda, Sharon and administrator Sarah, provide a haven of learning and fun for the children. Outside, the children love the hillside slide, the wooden forts, and the waterfall into the sandpit. Inside, books, puzzles, art and dressups encourage creativity and problem solving.


Our teachers have a focus on literacy, and use the children’s play and passions as chances to expand their learning. They also encourage families to visit, and to stay and play with the children. Our strong parent committee supports the kindy with fundraising and organising family events.

Our Vision

(This is our "wawata" - our dream or aspiration for our kindergarten)

We aspire to support children in their early years to build positive dispositions towards learning for life.
