Carina Kindy is community kindergarten nestled in the heart of Brisbane’s south side; on the border of Camp Hill and Carina. Our grounds are lush and green with great play equipment and facilities. If you are interested in seeing the kindy please contact us and arrange a time to visit, we would love to meet you!
Our mission is to provide excellence in early childhood education by creating a warm, caring and welcoming environment which affirms the unique worth of each individual. We are licensed under the Education and Care Services Act 2013 and Education and Care Services Regulation.
Our staff consists of two qualified early childhood teachers (Co-Directors) and one qualified assistant. The centre is not for profit and administered by a Management Committee of parents, which is elected at the AGM.
We offer a safe, secure and fun environment for your child to play, grow and learn. At Carina Kindy we believe a positive and open relationship with families is a vital in providing a positive experience for your child; therefore we will work together with families to provide an environment in which your child will feel comfortable and safe. We provide a place of learning and care where your child has access to active, play-based learning and developmentally appropriate resources. We have a strong emphasis on children engaging with the environment and being able to exercise choices which match their interests and capabilities.
We are positive your child will enjoy their time here with us and look forward to sharing time with you and your family as well. We offer an open invitation to families to play an active role in the centre and input to our programming.

No two days are the same at Carina Kindy. Our teaching team tailor each day’s learning taking into account the interests of the children in the group. The spacious environment at our kindy is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and time spent discovering the natural environment outdoors.
Community spirit is important to us at Carina Kindy. We foster our strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent input and involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten and programming decisions. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us
