What are the benefits of a Kindergarten program?
Research continues to provide evidence that the education children receive in the years before they commence school is the most important education they will receive. We deliver a School Readiness program that specializes in helping your child develop the skills and dispositions towards learning that we know they need to be successful in school. We focus on ensuring your children is socially, emotionally, and academically ready for the move to ‘big’ school.
This program includes an industry leading education focus on:
Foundational literacy and math skills
Learning to recognize and write their own name
Number recognition and early math problems
21st Century thinking skills and communication skills
Self-help skills and confidence in being independent

Lifelong Learning Centre's 2 Year Kindergarten Program
Internationally, research is suggesting that children who have access to two years of a high quality school readiness program – start ahead at school, and remain ahead. Our specifically designed Kindergarten program allows children to maximize their education and social development over a two year period, rather than one.
We welcome children from 3 years old into our program, led by experienced Lead Educators and Early Childhood Teachers.
Flexible Care Options & Session Times
One of the many benefits of our Kindergarten is our flexible care options which suit your needs. Community or school-based Kindergarten programs are typically run 2-3 days per week over 5-hr or 6-hr sessions. We offer 5-day-a-week options, with full-day and flexible session times to suit families, giving children access to far more choice and experience in their Kindergarten years.
Ask about our 10-hour and full-day sessions, or other special Kindergarten programs available throughout the year.
Casual bookings are accepted where places are available. Please also speak with us about school holiday care options, and how flexible sessions can meet your needs, so that you can make the most of the Child Care Subsidy available to you.
