Our kindergarten is located in an enviable position at Rowes Bay, Townsville. We overlook the Coral Sea and Magnetic Island. We have a large leafy, shady playground and a variety of wildlife frequenting our beautiful paperbark trees and ferns. Our building is designed to catch the sea breeze so is light and airy.
Rowes Bay Kindergarten is more than 50 years old and has gained a reputation over the years for providing a true play based program with trees to climb, dirt to play in and grass to roll on. We pride ourselves on having a natural setting with an open style building, encouraging children to interact with the great outdoors for large parts of the day.
Our staff are highly qualified, experienced and believe that children come first and that learning occurs most effectively through play. In 2013 our centre was assessed and rated against the National Quality Standards. We received an Exceeding rating in all seven quality areas, and therefore our overall rating was Exceeding NQS.
To be eligible for the kindergarten program, children must turn 3 prior to commencement.
The maximum number of children in each group is 22.
