    After School

Our brand new kindergarten and outside school hours care services opened on the St Ann’s Primary School site in January 2020.

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 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.

Throughout the kindergarten year your child will benefit from our close relationship with the school. Children will enjoy visits to the library, prep classrooms and playgrounds as well as attending events including the school sports carnival and the Book Week parade. 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. Our educators will watch your child’s confidence grow as they become part of our broader school and parish community and prepare for prep.

Our outside school hours care offers before and after school care for children from kindergarten to grade seven. 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 St Ann’s Primary School each day. Children are offered a healthy breakfast and after school snacks, which they help prepare.

Michelle Lonton

Kindergarten Teacher / Director

I’ve been an early ed teacher for:
8 years and I have worked predominantly in primary schools.
My favourite thing about being an early ed teacher is:
Helping children to develop independence and positive attitudes towards learning, in the year before they start school. It is also great fun to provide children with learning experiences in a play-based setting.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
I get it! I am a mother of three boys. I know kids have good days and bad. I understand that sometimes kids have big emotions for little people. I know that parenting is hard and yet so rewarding at the same time. I am here on this journey with you and your child!
My favourite way to relax is:
To go for a bush walk with my family, go to the gym and read a good book (when I have time!)
