T L Stone Memorial Kindergarten

​T L Stone Kindergarten is situated in the family friendly Princes Park. It is opposite the local swimming pool and next to the tennis courts.

As the oldest kindergarten in Maryborough, this beautiful brick building reflects the community’s understanding of children’s needs from a bygone era, but it still remains contemporary. It boasts beautiful grounds with a large tree providing natural shade, which complements the outdoor environment.

At T L Stone Kindergarten the experienced and friendly staff believe in providing an environment which is safe and inviting, a program where the activities are interesting, challenging and reflect children’s needs, and relationships which are warm and engaging.
