The Church was founded in 1909. After the opening of a rebuilt Parish hall in 1956, the Parish defined a Kindergarten precinct, which comprised a shared kitchen and exclusive use of part of the Parish Hall and Church grounds. In 1998, a State Government Grant, accumulated funds and voluntary labour, enabled the Kindergarten to extensively renovate the premises. The main room was enlarged and refitted and new toilets and a storage area was built. The Kindergarten is run by a Committee of Management and qualified staff. The Committee, as Proprietor, is comprised of parents and Parish representatives who are responsible for Kindergarten management, policy formulation and regulatory compliance. Our Philosophy We aim: to provide a safe, warm and secure environment. to promote connections and friendships between children, their families, staff and their communities. to encourage children to grow and develop by providing them with a stimulating environment to scaffold and extend their learning experiences both indoor and outdoor. to encourage sharing of ideas, thoughts and concerns in an open ended play based program. to provide a fun and welcoming atmosphere to stimulate and initiate the love for learning. to respect themselves and other people and their environment. to prepare children for a smooth and positive transition to their next year of learning or school. to respect parents as first teachers of their children and welcome their input and sharing of ideas, thoughts and concerns. to encourage families to be involved in the program to enhance the resource and richness this can bring to our community kindergarten. to teach children resilience, independence and above all positive self awareness. to teach life skills such as making choices, sharing, taking turns listening to others and negotiating outcomes. to have a universal view of our community and the world around us.
