Located in a peaceful setting, and featuring an expansive outdoor play area, St Augustine’s provides 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 programs that reflect the way they will socialise, learn and grow.

We are located at St Augustine’s College and your child will benefit from our close relationship with the school. In kindergarten children make weekly visits to the school library to borrow books and your child will be given responsibility for caring for and returning these books. They also enjoy visits to the prep classrooms and participating in school events including under 8’s day. 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, where to find the toilets and the difference between the senior and junior schools. Our educators will watch your child’s confidence grow as they become part of our broader school and parish community and prepare for prep.

At St Augustine’s 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 within five minutes of the Centenary Highway and Springfield Central Station off Augusta Parkway. We supply all meals, wipes, sunscreen, hats and cot linen. All you need to bring is nappies 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.

Sensory play in nursery

Stimulating and helping children explore all of their senses is an important part of the program in our nursery. Sensory play is anything that engages children’s sense of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing as well as movement and balance. The children love exploring sound through musical instruments, sight and touch by playing with mixed mediums and balance with our obstacle courses and age appropriate climbing frames.

"Since changing to St Augustine's Long Day Care + Kindergarten my daughter is bright and happy and asks to go to day care now! The kindness shown to my children is second to none, I will be sad when they graduate to primary school. "


Dramatic play

Across all ages the children enjoy engaging in dramatic play. In our home corner they enjoy taking on roles as shop attendants and customers, mums and dads, doctors and nurses and much more. They also enjoy exploring their creativity through singing, dancing and dramatic performances, These experiences provide a great opportunity for children to develop social skills, work together to create something new and develop language skills through storytelling and re-enacting.

"After 6 months at another centre I withdrew my daughter as they didn't understand her needs and called St Augustine's. On her first day I was so worried she would not like it but she transitioned with no problems and I really felt confident that finally my daughter was being cared for and looked after by trained educators. I really feel so lucky that my daughter is going to this child care and has these great educators and director who care and go the extra mile - they are like family now."
