Ward Avenue Kindergarten

​Providing high-quality Kindergarten for over 60 years!

Welcome to our 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs! At Ward Avenue Kindergarten, children thrive and become active participants in their learning and the community.

We create a stimulating and diverse environment, which includes a large outdoor space and sustainability & gardening program. Our Kindergarten is family-centred and focuses on the connections that children have with their family and community. We work in partnership with parents to help create the right learning environment for your child.

Facilities and Services

  • ​SHARING MOMENTS & CONNECTIONS
    At Ward Avenue Kindergarten, we record children’s learning on an online medium called ‘Storypark’ and in portfolios. Educators and families are able to see children’s special moments, event highlights, and observations.

  • EXCURSIONS & INCURSIONS
    Children participate in incursions and an excursion. This may include a visit from the museum, music and drama experiences, Living Safely with Dogs, Road Safety, and a visit to Chesterfield Farm. These experiences allow children to extend their learning.

  • SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAM
    We run a Sustainability and Gardening Program. This enables the children to get fully immersed in our amazing front garden. We look at pollution of the seas and the environment, recycling at home and in the garden, being water wise, and are involved in national tree week. 

  • EXCEEDING STANDARDS
    Ward Avenue Kindergarten has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards. Our experienced, qualified and skilled educators strive for excellence and continually seek to improve in all aspects of their work.

  • SPACE TO PLAY & EXPLORE
    We have large indoor and outdoor play spaces so that children have plenty of room to move and explore. Our playground is large and leafy, providing space for your child to explore, discover and be creative.
