    8:45am - 2:45pm

Conveniently located at Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School, your child will benefit from our close relationship with the school. We are located within the school prep building and the children enjoy visiting the playground and our neighbours in prep. The children also make weekly visits to the school library and enjoy attending school events such as sports carnivals and assemblies. Each day your child will become more familiar with the school grounds and and learn new skills such as how to use the water bubblers 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.

At Our Lady of the Rosary we have expansive natural outdoor play areas which provide children with a unique learning environment that encourages creativity and exploration. We believe each child is unique and learns differently, so our educators will spend time getting to know your child and family so we can create engaging learning experiences that capture their interest and help them build new skills.

We offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program taught by a university qualified early childhood teacher. As a sessional kindergarten children complete a five-day fortnight, during school hours and school terms.

Meet Our Staff

Emma Lane

Kindergarten Teacher

I’ve been an early ed teacher for:
10 years.
My favourite thing about being an early ed teacher is:
Seeing children grow and develop and build confidence to become independent and capable lifelong learners.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
Enjoy the journey and value the everyday moments, there will be ups and downs, but it’s important to remember nothing is forever, so hold on tight and enjoy the ride!
My favourite way to relax is:
Yoga on my back deck or reading a great book! (When I have the time!)

Ash Wednesday liturgy

On Ash Wednesday the children visited the chapel for a liturgy. This was their first visit to the chapel so the children were full of intrigue and had many questions for Fr Mark as he brought them inside. During the liturgy the children heard about the importance of Ash Wednesday in the church and were blessed with the ashes. When our liturgy ended the children were excited to look around the chapel and compare crosses with their friends. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of our preparations for Easter and the children will continue to visit the chapel and discuss this important time of the year in the lead up to Easter.

Sharing lunch and play

Once a week we join the prep children for lunch in the shared outdoor area. The children get to sit with different people each week and this is an opportunity for the children to build diverse relationships and friendships within the community. During this time the children will also get to know, as well as learn to take direction from other teachers. Some weeks we will also join the prep children during lunchtime play, this provides a busier setting for children to form friendships and learn to negotiate and solve problems on their own. These visits are a great opportunity for the children to see they are part of a bigger community and they love to make friends with the ‘big kids’.
