St Mary's Kindergarten

Kinder now is free for 3 and 4-year-old children. Read more here.

Our experienced and passionate educators offer three and four-year-old kindergarten programs within the tranquil grounds of St Mary’s historic church.

We offer a varied and active play-based program that focuses on developing children's physical, social, emotional and intellectual skills. Our professionally trained educators have created a learning environment that is designed to help children grow and develop confidence. We strive to help children reach their potential and to prepare them to start school with a positive experience of learning and strong relationships with trusted adults. We develop and implement high-quality programs that encourage children to feel secure and happy in a positive and relaxed learning environment.

Our educators recognise the important role families play in a child’s learning journey, and we encourage a shared partnership between children, families and educators within our kindergarten community. Our programs are inspired by your child's imagination and developmental needs, and they allow children to learn at their own pace and become responsible for themselves.

St Mary's Kindergarten has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard. Click here to find out more about the National Quality Standards.



Facilities and programs

We are a sustainable kindergarten. This means respect for our environment is critical to us, and we believe that this should start at an early age.

Our outdoor space features a beautiful native garden that includes a Casuarina forest, a bushfire themed grassland and a lush tropical garden. There are also vegetable gardens, a sandpit and an open play area. This garden encourages the children to seek out and find private play spaces where they can explore and experiment without feeling that they are under constant observation.  Children can also get their hands dirty with sand, mud, dirt, water and other elements from nature. Shady areas protect children from the sun.

Our indoor play space is well lit with natural light and offers views of the garden areas.
