Geebung Kindergarten and Preschool is a community based, not for profit Kindy which has been providing quality early childhood education since 1966. We are located next to Bowden Park in Geebung.
We have a committed, highly qualified and dedicated team of staff. All of our staff are passionate about early childhood education and this is evident in our high quality program.
Children share the Kindy year with the same 22 children, teacher and educator. This consistency allows the children to feel a sense of belonging and connection with their peers and staff.
Our rich and stimulating learning environment supports children to explore and discover through play. Our play based programs cater to the individual child and are designed around intentional and incidental learning experiences.
Our programming follows the Early Years Learning Framework (National Curriculum) and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline.
The National Quality Framework (NQF) provides a national approach to regulation, assessment and quality improvement for early childhood education and care across Australia. We are very proud that Geebung Kindy is rated at ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard.
About our Centre
Eight women started our centre originally as a child-minding centre on 24 March 1949. They moved from the Geebung Memorial Hall into an army disposals hut on Robinson Road in 1952. This hut was then moved to Weenga Street in 1960, where a kindergarten and childcare centre was conducted. A big demand for preschool saw an end to our childcare days in 1965. A new centre was built in Maidencombe Street and was officially open on the 5th March 1966. The Association was incorporated in 1986. Today the centre is a two unit kindergarten and pre-school, providing facilities for up to 88 children.
No two days are the same at Geebung Kindergarten and Preschool. 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 Geebung Kindergarten and Preschool. 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
