We are located in a peaceful setting, not far from the Capalaba CBD. Our team will take the time to get to know your child, so that each week they can create new learning experiences that capture their interest and help them build new skills.

Your child will benefit from our close proximity and relationship with St Luke’s Primary School. 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. The children also enjoy visits to the school playgrounds, joining the preps for lunch box days and attending school events including Masses, assemblies, cross country and under 8’s day. During each visit your child will become more comfortable on the school grounds as they and learn how to use the water bubblers, where to find the toilets and become familiar with the classroom environment. 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 Luke’s we care for children from six weeks and offer a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program for children in the year before prep. We supply all meals, wipes, sunscreen and cot linen. All you need to bring is nappies, a hat 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.

"Thank you so much to all the team for your unwavering love and help in supporting Noah through bubs room all the way to his last official year of Kindy. We have been at the service now for seven years and in that time we have been so blessed for you to take care of not only Noah but also Bailey and Eli. We love you all and will miss you dearly. "

Bush kindy adventures

In our bush kindy program, children have the opportunity to explore and discover new natural environments, observe diverse wildlife and trees, and appreciate the natural world.  Our explorations lead to numerous questions and often, collecting sticks, leaves, and flowers which the children then use for craft and other classroom activities. 

Sharing special items

Show and Tell is an exciting activity that allows children to share their world with their peers. In this engaging classroom exercise, each child is invited to bring an item from home, something that is special to them, and then talk about it with the group. While they share, their classmates listen attentively, learning about the unique interests and experiences of their friends. Show and Tell also offers an opportunity for interaction as other children can ask questions about the item, fostering curiosity and communication skills. This activity not only promotes self-expression but also provides an opportunity to practice respect and builds a sense of community within the classroom, where every child’s perspective is valued.
