Our Government Approved Kindergarten Program

Posted by Angela Watson on 12 January 2017
Our Government Approved Kindergarten Program

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

The difference for the Kindy group is that we have access to a qualified Early Childhood Teacher to plan, implement and document the educational program from 9am to 3.30pm every day. This is part of the Australian Government's plan to improve the quality of early childhood education. 

We have a fully qualified Lead Educator who plans the program in the hours outside of 9am to 3.30pm. For children to get the most out of our Kindy 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.
