Welcome to Florence Kindergarten! Florence Kindergarten is a stand-alone service which was established in 1955 by community effort and volunteer labour. We offer a natural, play based learning framework lead by caring, degree qualified teachers and educators. In June 2021 we achieved our 2nd Exceeding Rating all areas of the National Quality Standards.
Our aim is to provide an enriched environment where your children can truly grow as individuals and be prepared for the next important steps in their lives. Our teaching team tailors each day’s learning, taking into account the interests of the children in the group. Our spacious and natural environment is thoughtfully planned and well resourced. There is a focus on music, drama, literature and visual arts and we allocate plenty of time for outdoor play and discovery.
Community involvement is important to us at Florence Kindergarten. We foster strong ties to the local community by encouraging parent involvement in the daily operations of the kindergarten. We often hold and partake in community events and love connecting with local businesses and groups around us and taking the children on excursions to our local beach and other community facilities.
If you would like to view our unique and beautiful centre and meet the teachers, please call and arrange a time to visit. Our Admin Office is available on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:30am to 2:00pm.
