We are excited to have opened the doors to our kindergarten and outside school hours care service on the Good Samaritan College site in 2019.

At Good Samaritan Kindergarten + Outside School Hours Care we believe each child is unique and learns differently, so our educators will spend time getting to know your child and family so that we can create engaging learning experiences that capture their interest and help them build new skills.

We offer a Queensland Government approved sessional kindergarten program. This program is is taught by a university qualified early childhood teacher and children complete a five-day fortnight, during school hours and school terms. Before and after kindergarten care is also available for all children.

In kindergarten your child will benefit from our close relationship with the school. They will enjoy visits to the school library, prep classrooms and playgrounds and attending school events. During each visit your child will become more familiar with the school grounds and learn new skills such as how to use the water bubblers, where they have to walk and where they can run and where to find the toilets. Our educators will watch your child’s confidence grow as they become part of our broader school and parish community and prepare for school.

Our outside school hours care offers before and after school care for children from kindergarten to grade six. We offer a flexible and child initiated program with educators incorporating children’s ideas, cultures and interests when planning each day’s experiences. Our team will drop off and collect children from Good Samaritan College each day. Children are offered a healthy breakfast and after school snacks, which they help prepare.

Embracing friendship

Our outside school hours care program provides a unique setting for children to interact with peers who may not be part of their regular classes We actively encourage children to listen and respond to the different personalities they encounter, fostering a sense of acceptance and understanding. By promoting an environment where children acknowledge and embrace the distinct qualities and traits of their peers, we aim to cultivate a strong sense of inclusivity and respect, helping children develop essential social skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. 

Nurturing self-expression

Every day during group time, the kindergarten children engage in a variety of activities, including painting and drawing, creating with playdough, and developing socially through dramatic play. This combination of self-expression and interactive play fosters creativity and enhances their social development. 

Nurturing young hearts and minds

“This is the sky and this is the land, these are the waters, and we are the people that respect these places hand in hand with the Kabi Kabi people.”    

 The children begin their day with a heartfelt tribute to the sky, land, and waters they inhabit, alongside the Kabi Kabi people. This age-appropriate acknowledgment of country, recited in unison with purposeful hand movements, helps cultivate children’s awareness and appreciation of First Nations culture, fostering respect and inclusivity. We are committed to helping children grow respectfully, with respect for themselves and others and reverence for the natural world that surrounds them. 

Current Fee Schedule

Fees are reviewed annually and may be increased each year. Quality care for children, affordability for families and financial viability of the service are the key elements in determining fees.
