What is kindy?
Kindy is a play-based learning program for children in the year before school. The attributes and skills that children develop at a quality kindy can set them up for success at school and in life!
At kindy, kids learn through play and other fun and enriching activities from a qualified Early Childhood Teacher.
Kids learn about themselves and others, make friends and grow in confidence.
They also develop the building blocks for early literacy and numeracy and important social and emotional skills.
