Kindergarten Program

Preparing your child for school through a recognised Kindergarten program can be an extremely positive stage in their educational and social development, before embarking on their life changing school years. Check if your local LEAD Childcare Service offers a Government Approved Kindergarten program, delivered by qualified Early Childhood Teachers.

Government Approved Program

Our quality facilities, materials, processes and Early Childhood Teachers combine to deliver an outstanding environment for your child’s development.

Our Early Childhood Teachers incorporate the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines into their program. This builds connections between what children already know or can do, their learning in a Kindergarten program and future learning in Prep.


Our Early Childhood Teachers strengthen children's sense
of belonging, being and becoming as they:

Make deliberate and well-informed decisions to promote and enrich children's holistic learning and development.

Build respectful relationships with each family, the community and professional partners.

Promote children's well-being and ongoing learning.

Interact with children with a clear focus to promote learning.

Support children with additional needs.

Monitor and assess children’s learning and communicate on their progress with relevant partners.

Build connections between children’s prior, current and future learning experiences to promote continuity.


Promoting continuity of learning for children

The Kindergarten guidelines also provide two tools for Kindergarten Early Childhood Teachers to assist them in promoting continuity of learning for children:

Assists teachers to assess, reflect and share information with parents about children’s progress.

A summary of each child’s learning with contributions from the Kindergarten Program Early Childhood Teacher, family and children, created towards the end of the year.

Families retain this document and are encouraged to share it with their child’s Prep Teacher to support a smooth transition to Prep.

"Our image of the child is rich in potential, strong, powerful, competent, and most of all connected to adults and other children."
