Welcome to Highfields & District Kindergarten.
We are a double unit Kindergarten with four groups of children. Each group attends for 30 hours over a 5 day fortnight. We cater for children 3.5 years to 5 years of age in the year before they attend prep.
Each group of Kindergarten aged children participate in a play-based educational program from the Queensland Curriculum & Assessment Authority approved curriculum: Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline. The program is conducted by our dedicated University Trained Early Childhood Teachers and their Certificate III and Diploma qualified Assistants.
You are most welcome to phone or e-mail us for more information about our centre or alternatively, please give us a call to arrange for a convenient time to look through our beautiful Kindy. Our door is always open.
Children are at the heart of all we do at Highfields & District Kindergarten. Each child has the opportunity to learn and grow in a playful, enjoyable, energetic and engaging environment geared to their individual needs.
Parents are recognised as the first and most important educators of their children. Each family is warmly welcomed into the kindergarten community and close, considerate and genuine relationships between families and staff are regarded as paramount.
Staff are passionate about early childhood education and the vital importance of learning through play to bring out the best in every child. They go above and beyond in their roles as dedicated, nurturing and enthusiastic professionals with a wealth of experience.
Our program is child focussed and child driven, whilst aligning with the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline. Taking into account children’s unique interests and emerging capabilities, it provides fun opportunities for developing minds to thrive. Children’s progress is self-paced and they are empowered to become life-long learners. The development of positive behaviours is embedded to encourage each child’s expanding social skills.
We embrace and value opportunities for community input and involvement and are inclusive of diverse demographics, values and culture. We acknowledge our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors and the significance of caring for country.
Highfields & District Kindergarten is a special place, with aesthetically pleasing learning environments both inside and outside, inspiring adventure and investigation. We are a well-established and resourced community kindergarten, offering a beautiful introduction to education and learning outside of the home.
