Welcome to Sherwood Community Kindergarten. Established in 1958, Sherwood Community Kindergarten has been providing high quality early education for more than 60 years.
At Sherwood Community Kindergarten we are passionate about educating and caring for our pre-prep aged children through play that encourages, supports and challenges children with fun, friendship and learning. All within an environment where each child feels valued, safe and supported.
We are lucky to be located in a lovely street next to Hives Park, Sherwood. Our kindergarten has been designed to provide generous spaces for children to play, inside and outside, in our large natural play area.
Sherwood Kindergarten is a not-for-profit community kindergarten and is guided by a management committee made up of family volunteers. Families make our kindergarten special and we always encourage families to be involved in our Kindy program on a daily basis.
We are positive your child will enjoy their time here with us and look forward to sharing time with you and your family as well. We offer an open invitation to families to play an active role in the centre and input to our programming.
Please contact us for more information.
No two days are the same at Sherwood Kindy. 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 Sherwood Kindy. 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
