Good Samaritan Kindergarten + Outside School Hours Care
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.
