Church Street Kindergarten & Preschool Association Inc

Welcome

Church Street Kindergarten was established in 1958 as Wacol Army Village Kindergarten and serviced Wacol, Camira, Darra and the Centenary Suburbs. After the sale of the Army Village in 1987, the kindergarten relocated to Goodna for the Commencement of the 1988 School Year. 

The kindergarten is situated in a suburban environment amongst houses.  This is a less daunting first step into an educational facility, with only 22 children in attendance unlike hundreds of other children in a school environment. The building is orientated towards a large tree-covered grassy playground with an emphasis on natural materials such as timber and bark. 

Church Street Kindergarten & Preschool provides all of the Library, Music & Movement and Language activities available at schools. The centre has extensive indoor and outdoor play equipment and resources which have been purchased and maintained over many years through parent fundraising efforts.  We value all of our past and present families as being part of our Church Street Community.

Church Street Kindergarten has a long history of stable and consistent Staff members.  Many of our past students return with their own children.
