Welcome

Biloela Kindy has been helping young children grow since its inception in 1956. Biloela Kindy has held long associations with the general community and many of todays' parents enjoyed their kindergarten years with us.

Biloela Kindy is run by an elected volunteer management committee comprising of parents from the current years parents group. As a non-profit kindy (with all funds being invested back in to the kindy), the kindy relies on this management to ensure the successful operation of the kindy from year to year.

At Biloela Kindy, we offer a kindy and pre-kindy group - for children who have turned three years old in the year before they attend kindergarten.

The play-based learning of an approved kindergarten program helps prepare children for school and develop skills that are useful for life. Kindy program helps prepare children for school and develop skills that are useful for life. Kindy programs:

What will my child learn?

Approved kindergarten programs develop your child's physical, social, intellectual, language and emotional abilities. They will have opportunities to learn how to:

  • use language to communicate ideas, feelings and needs
  • make friends and cooperate with other children

  • identify, explore and solve problems
  • develop reading, writing and numeracy skills

Your child will take part in individual and group activities such as block play, painting, games, puzzles, storytelling, dress-ups, dancing and singing.

Children take part in outdoor physical activities and interact with the natural environment

 

What is the learning program based on?

All approved kindergarten programs are based on the Queensland kindergarten learning guideline. The pre-kindy program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework. These guidelines give teachers advice on how to deliver a kindy program that meets national and state quality standards and regulations.
