Wandoan and District Kindergarten is a safe, interesting and enjoyable environment for 3-5 year olds.
A quality educational program suited to the children's needs, interests and abilities is provided and most of the children's learning is done through play. The children are active participants in their own learning, sharing in decisions about what they will do and learn at kindy. They are encouraged to explore, discover and create, grow in self-confidence and improve in all areas of their development.
We promote equity and inclusion for all associated with Wandoan Kindergarten and we recognise the importance and involvement of children, parents, staff and the wider community for the most effective operation of our service.

Pre-kindy in a kindergarten program
Three-year-old children will attend the existing high-quality community kindergarten program alongside four-year-olds, which will complement and extend children's learning at home. It also provides learning opportunities that are not always readily available in a home context – including building relationships with teachers and learning to cooperate with peers in a group environment.
Attending this program in terms 3 and 4, 2022 will provide children with opportunities to learn alongside older children and provide an individualised and developmentally appropriate approach.
