Bush kindy program
In kindergarten we encourage children to explore and discover the world around them. Through our bush kindy programs children are learning to respect and care for the natural environment and responsible risk taking.
Catholic Early EdCare partners with Brisbane Catholic Education, local schools and parishes to deliver kindergartens that are embedded in their local school and parish communities.
Regular excursions to explore the grounds of co-located schools are a highlight for many of the kindergarten children. This is an opportunity for them to familiarise themselves with a primary school environment, building their confidence for the transition to prep. While in 2020 COVID-19 has delayed many school and community events such as Under Eights Day and athletics carnivals, which the kindergarten children were looking forward to, they are enjoying connecting with the school in new ways through buddy programs and letter writing with school children.
At Catholic Early EdCare we are committed to working with families. We have kindergarten programs available in long day care and sessional kindergarten settings. Most of our kindergartens are co-located with Brisbane Catholic Education schools. Find out more about the program and a kindergarten near you here.
