Our Government Approved Kindergarten Program

Posted by Angela Watson on 4 August 2020
Our Government Approved Kindergarten Program

Kindergarten is very similar to the other age groups at Kookaburra in that we provide high quality educational programs for all the children enrolled in the room.

However our Kindergarten program caters specifically for children in the year prior to Prep. In addition to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) our Kindergarten curriculum is informed by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidlines (QKLG). We employ a Bachelor Qualified Early Childhood Teacher to run our Kindergarten progam with face to face delivery of the program from 8.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday. Outside these hours we have a Diploma Qualified Lead Educator to run the program.

For children to get the most out of our Kindergarten program, they should arrive before 9am and leave after 3.30pm.

Our Kindergarten is Government Approved, this means low income families whose children have health care cards can access additional fee relief for their child to attend a kindergarten program, however they must attend at least 3 days per week and cannot be attending another government approved kindergarten program.

In addition parents of Kindergarten aged children are offered exemption from the Goverments activity test for the purpose of Child Care Subsidy (CCS). This means you can access upto 36 hours of subsidised care for your Kindergarten aged child even if you don't currently meet the governments activity test requirements.
