    Vacation Care

    6:30am - 6:00pm

We offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program taught by a university qualified early childhood teacher. As a sessional kindergarten, children attend during school hours and school terms. Children can also attend before and after kindergarten care as well as vacation care. At St Ann’s, kindergarten families can choose the combination of days that suit them.

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.

Throughout the kindergarten year your child will benefit from our close relationship with the school. Children enjoy visits to the library, prep classrooms and playgrounds as well as attending school events. During each visit your child will become more familiar with the school grounds and learn new skills. Our educators will watch your child’s confidence grow as they become part of our broader school community and prepare for prep.

Our outside school hours care service offers before and after school care for children from kindergarten to grade six. We offer a flexible, 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.

"Thank you Miss Ina for being such a wonderful and positive influence in Luna's life. She adores you! Thank you Miss Tia for all the activities and games you create. And lastly, to all the hard working people at St Ann's Kindy! You're all truly appreciated and have created such a wonderful place for early education."


Embracing friendship 

Our outside school hours program caters for children from kindergarten to grade six. With a range of activities to reflect different ages and interests, the program is designed to support calm and positive transitions from home to school or kindergarten  and back again. 


Children are encouraged to enjoy the activities of their choice, whether that be quiet relaxation or building new friendships through creative projects, shared art activities or physical play. As well as familiar classroom peers, the children are supported to mingle with new friends of different ages 


During school holiday periods we offer a Vacation care program, often incorporating  special events and incursions as well as excursions to popular destinations so children and families make the most of their holiday time. 

Nurturing self-expression 

Every day during group time, the children engage in a range of experiences that  respond to their interests, help them develop socially  and encourage active exploration. Some of the children’s favourite experiences include outside and nature play including gardening and sports activities and physical loose parts play such as construction. 

Bush kindy

As part of our bush kindy program the children can explore and learn about new natural environments, observe different animals and trees and start to conserve and care for a beautiful natural space. During these expeditions the children always have lots of questions for their teachers about what they are seeing and are able to bring back to the classroom sticks, leaves and flowers for further exploration during craft and other classroom experiences.

Meet Our Staff

Alison Ellis

Kindergarten Teacher Director

I’ve been an early ed teacher:
For a very long time but in kindergarten for four years which I love the most.
My favourite thing about being an early ed teacher is:
Watching children learn and grow through play, especially caring for nature and observing how children use the natural environment in their play including finding bugs and growing our own vegetables.
Something I like to tell all mums and dads is:
That each child is special and will learn and grow at their own pace, don’t rush them let them enjoy being a child.
My favourite way to relax is:
Reading a book and spending time with my family outdoors camping or 4wd driving and I love watching my children participate in school and sport experiences.

Current Fee Schedule
