What is kindy?
Kindergarten, known as kindy, is a part-time educational program for children in the year before Prep (the first year of school in Queensland). Kindy is a place where your child will learn through play experiences and interactions that support their early learning, wellbeing and development.
By participating in kindy, children develop a love of learning and are supported with their transition to Prep.
Pelican’s Nest ELC runs a Queensland Government-approved kindy program, delivered by a qualified early childhood teacher.
In Queensland, children can attend kindy in the year before they start Prep.
At Pelican’s Nest we also run a Pre-Kindy program for children aged from 3 years. Our Pre-Kindy program is focused on preparing children and getting them ready and confident to start Kindergarten.
