St. Paul’s Anglican Kindergarten is a not for profit organization with over 70 years experience in providing early childhood education to 3 to 5 year old children. The teaching staff are highly qualified Early Childhood Professionals who strive to enrich children’s lives through vibrant and diverse tailored learning programs, which prepares children for life, not just for school.
At St. Paul’s Anglican Kindergarten, we value Early Childhood Education as the introduction to your child’s formal education years. Each child and their family are actively involved in the development of the curriculum; they learn that they are a valued member of the kindergarten group and the community at large. All involved with the kindergarten are respected as individuals, diversity and culture are celebrated. We encourage positive relationships towards the community, as well as between committee, parents, children and staff.
We have children attending from many neighboring suburbs including: Canterbury, Surrey Hills and Camberwell and do not operate on zoned selection.
St. Paul’s Anglican Kindergarten has very strong, established links with local primary schools, which assists children during their transition from kindergarten to school.
St Paul’s Anglican Kindergarten encourages parent and family involvement in all aspects of the program. Parents are welcome to assist with their child’s kindergarten group as part of our stay and play program.
Each ‘Stay and Play’ session can involve you assisting with a variety of activities including painting, drama, cooking, creating, reading and outdoor play. There are also many other opportunities for families to be a part of their child’s journey through kindergarten including accompanying your child on excursions or joining in for our Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparents and Special Visitors Day.
Our kindergarten is governed by a committee which is made up of volunteer parents and St Pauls Anglican Church representatives.
The Management Committee manages the day-to-day running of the Kindergarten, including finances, personnel, policies and the maintenance of the playgrounds and building. View the Committee Roles PDF to learn more about each role.
The Social Committee is responsible for fundraising and organising social events for both the parents and children and is a great way to get to know the St Paul’s community.
