Bambara Kindy has all the benefits of being part of a friendly and thriving community. By enroling your child with us you are assured of providing your child with a seamless transition to Pre Primary and beyond.

Students have access to secure landscaped gardens which encourage play based learning, socialisation and language development;

  • large shaded sandpit areas and mud kitchens,
  • outdoor grassed areas,
  • a cycle way for developing gross motor skills and learning road rules,
  • nature play logs for climbing, stepping and jumping,
  • and a modern playground which is physically challenging providing an area for creative play,
  • raised garden beds where students plant herbs, seasonal vegetables and flowers for cooking and classroom activities.

In addition to our outdoor spaces, classrooms include exciting environments that are designed for formal learning and social interaction and play.

  • Home corners, book corners, puzzles, block and a variety of construction toys all provide students with opportunities to explore, create and discover.
  • Structured play activities enable early learning oral literacy and numeracy skills to be acquired and developed.
  • Technology products such as iPads, desktop computers and interactive touchscreens allow students to access interactive applications that teach early learning literacy and numeracy skills in an informal way.

Our Kindy staff are caring and highly committed to provide your child with the best start to school.
