Parent Involvement


St. Paul’s Anglican Kindergarten encourages parent and family involvement in all aspects of the program. Parents and carers are welcome to assist with their child’s kindergarten group as part of our stay and play program,  join the Committee of Management or through various social volunteer opportunities.

Stay & Play


Surrounded by an increasingly fast-paced, highly structured and technological world, we recognise the importance of teaching the children to slow down, explore the natural environment, problem solve and take risks within a supported framework.Bush Kinder offers unplanned, unknown and unpredictable encounters, which lead to significant provocations for learning. (Waters 2012)Bush Kinder has been extensively researched, particularly overseas, and shows significant benefits to children’s confidence, motivation, resilience and concentration, as well as increased visual, social, physical, imaginative and language skills.At St. Paul’s we are incredibly fortunate to be able to offer such a rich and diverse opportunity for our children within an inner-city environment.
