We are a community kindergarten established in 1974 by a group of dedicated parents. Since opening its doors, many children in Bellbowrie, Moggill and surrounding areas have developed their playing and learning skills while using the facilities of our centre.
We are affiliated with the Créche and Kindergarten Association of Queensland (C&K). Our qualified early-childhood educators create a flexible play-based indoor and outdoor program to meet the needs and interests of each child. We are a well resourced centre with a large shady playground, quality equipment and established trees and natural grass.
We believe that each child comes to us with a wealth of knowledge, experience and images of their own and they have the right to be active participants in their own living and learning. We also value parent/carer involvement and participation.
Investigating the world through play is the most successful way for young children to develop the skills to be lifelong learners. We encourage the children to problem solve, to question, to think, to find out about things, and to be enthusiastic about learning. The children are deeply involved in the learning process and encouraged to actively experiment and discover for themselves.
Our aim is to make the Bellbowrie Kindergarten environment a supportive and caring one where children are encouraged to develop the self-confidence and enthusiasm to move on to school.
Our program has a strong emphasis on unstructured play. We believe that to develop a sound mind and body it is essential that alongside targeted teaching sessions, young children be afforded the time, space and ability to engage with and explore materials in their own way.
Our staff at Bellbowrie Kindergarten are highly experienced and deeply engaged in every child's learning process, encouraging them to actively experiment and discover for themselves.
They have decades of experience between them, and they have a deep connection with both the kindy and the broader community.
Children are eligible if they turn 4 by June 30 in the year they attend kindergarten. You can register for next year or the following years.
