Larch Street Kindergarten

​Teaching and nurturing children for over 50 years!

Nestled within the beautiful parkland setting of Cootamundra Walk, our kindergarten is conveniently located opposite a playground where children, their siblings, parents and carers will often socialise before or after sessions.

Our facilities offer both indoor and outdoor play experiences. Indoors is equipped with heating and air conditioning, while outdoors is set amongst mature trees and gardens, and has a roofed decking and shade sail coverage over playground equipment.

Facilities and Services

  • ​COMMUNITY EXCURSIONS
    We maintain close connections with our local community and take children on excursions to help them discover their local area. These outings also teach the children about the world around them.

  • SPACE TO EXPLORE
    Children are given the space to play outside in a variety of weather conditions. Our outdoor environment is set amongst mature trees, has a roofed decking and shade sail coverage over playground equipment.

  • DIVERSE CURRICULUM
    Our curriculum supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical, technological and creative learning. We also a celebrate multiculturalism and include a variety of cultural events throughout the year.

  • SAFETY IN THE SUN
    At Larch Street Kindergarten, we are very conscious of keeping our staff and children safe in the sun; therefore we are official participants in the SunSmart program.
