About Us:

Your Catholic childcare centre, with integrated kindergarten, has been blessed with a wonderful location. It is nestled within the slope of a little hill, tucked away from the busyness of the street and covered in native trees and grasses that form a lush, natural backdrop to the centre. There is a basket ball court to the left, cane fields to the right, and a large grassed field right out the front. What more could you ask for?

We have a choice of 2 kindergarten programs running at our centre: Kindy 1 (Flexible) and Kindy 2 (Sessional)

Kindy 1 will operate daily sessions for 22 children for 39 weeks per year during the Catholic school terms and you may choose to attend any day. Kindergarten 1 is open from 7am to 6pm, however Kindergarten sessions run between 8.30am to 4.30pm each day. A four year qualified teacher will deliver the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline.

Kindy 2 will operate two sessions for 22 children in each session, for 39 weeks of the year. You may choose to attend our Monday, Tuesday and alternate Wednesday group or our Thursday, Friday, alternate Wednesday group. Kindy starts at 8.30am and finishes at 3.00pm. A four year qualified teacher will deliver the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline.

"What's for lunch today?" will be a question asked by many, when the aromas from the kitchen waft through the garden into the rooms. Healthy, nutritious meals are cooked by the wonderful Miss Zanthie, our resident cook and are served in the dining room, with children setting tables, chatting and sharing a meal with the Educators, and sitting on little wooden chairs made locally just for our kids.

The children have their very own art studio and a special spot for busy clay workers.
Our outdoor program is just as important to us as our indoor program, therefore we have large landscaped gardens for your child to explore. Bushwalks into our local surrounds play a large part of our program.
