Early Learning Centre

Kinder@CreekSt

In 2017 we are opening a Kindergarten, located in our new facility on Myrtle Street (access through Creek St school site). Kinder@CreekSt.  aims to provide a safe and secure learning environment exploring Christian beliefs and values in partnership with parents. Together we seek to foster the education, well-being and development of every child. Our delight is providing opportunities to support each child’s life long journey of developing foundational concepts and skills within a caring and loving environment.

We will provide authentic and engaging learning opportunities for four-year-old children to explore, investigate and learn more about themselves and their world. We believe children are created to be naturally inquisitive and creative. We endeavour to encourage them to develop their potential, use their unique gifts, natural abilities and tendencies to explore their world. Kinder@CreekSt. provides a firm educational foundation and stepping stone into the community of Creek Street Christian College. Children will be encouraged to develop investigative, inquiry-based skills, curiosity and wonder through projects inspired through the emergent learning curriculum.
