The Gap Community Kindergarten was established in 1972 and in 2009 the kindergarten became a branch centre with direct governance by The Creche and Kindergarten Association. In 2011 the kindergarten located to its present site where The Gap State School was founded. We are a 2 unit centre providing a 5 day fortnight kindergarten program to 4 groups of 22 children with 2 groups attending daily. Enrolments are for children who are turning 4 years of age by 30 June in the year of attendance.
Our kindergarten is unique in having a large Nature Space that directly adjoins our back playground. Commencing in term 2 of each year we access this space weekly with the children. Nature play provides the children with many opportunities to challenge themselves, explore, create and connect with the natural world.
