    7:00am - 6:00pm

Surrounded by peaceful bushland at Majella we believe each child is unique and learns differently, so our educators will spend time getting to know your child and family so they can create engaging real-life learning experiences that capture your child’s interest and build their confidence. In kindergarten your child will also explore different languages and cultures as part of our program, hepling them appreciate diversity and sparking new learning adventures.

At Majella we care for children from six weeks and offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program for children in the year before prep. We are conveniently located on Maundrell Terrace with easy access to Gympie Road for families who commute to the CBD. We supply all meals, wipes, sunscreen and cot linen. All you need to bring is nappies, a hat and a spare change of clothes. We offer nutritious, age-specific meals for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. All meals are prepared on site daily by our cook and approved by nutrition Australia. We are supportive of special dietary requirements and encourage families to discuss their child’s needs with us.

Meet Our Staff

Kathleen

Director

I’ve been an early ed director since:
January 2021.
My favourite thing about being an early ed director is:
Building strong relationships with both families, children and my staff team. Watching children gain confidence and a sense of belonging at our service. Seeing the joy in children’s faces brings me such a feeling of fulfilment.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
I like to share with them those individual and special moments that I see in their children each and everyday.
My favourite way to relax is:
Float around my pool or sit in the spa to cool off in hot weather. I love to spend time with my grown up children and my adorable grandchildren.

Eunice

Kindergarten Teacher

I’ve been an early ed teacher for:
Five years at Majella and 10 years in total.
My favourite thing about being an early ed teacher is:
Watching how the connections I build with children support their current and lifelong learning. I love learning from and with children. I enjoy seeing the ‘light bulb’ moments when they grasp a concept individually or with support.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
Play is significant in kindergarten as it allows children to practice, process and learn about their world.
My favourite way to relax is:
Going for nature walks.

Getting crafty

Children love exploring their emerging creativity and it is also an opportunity to develop their fine motor skills. The children love investigating the different textures and colours of the craft materials and exploring the use of the different tools, learning to hold a pencil and make marks on paper or using paint brushes and glue sticks. Our educators are always on hand to provide guidance for children as they experience new things and develop their skills, encouraging their early attempts and sharing their delight in success.
