Welcome to St Lucia Kindy. We are located opposite Ironside State School and very close to the University of Queensland. Our centre offers educational programs for children aged 3 to 5 and may have 22 children enrolled in each group. The program offered by the kindergarten is designed and implemented by teachers who have university qualifications in Early Childhood Education. Affiliation with C&K requires the centre to meet high standards in relation to:
- Staff qualifications
- Adult/child ratios
- Building and playground environment
We offer a safe, secure and fun environment for your child to play, grow and learn. At St Lucia Kindy we believe a positive and open relationship with families is a vital in providing a positive experience for your child; therefore we will work together with families to provide an environment in which your child will feel comfortable and safe. We provide a place of learning and care where your child has access to active, play-based learning and developmentally appropriate resources. We have a strong emphasis on children engaging with the environment and being able to exercise choices which match their interests and capabilities.
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.

No two days are the same at St Lucia 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 St Lucia 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
