We are a community owned non-profit organisation affiliated with Lady Gowrie and have been operating on the present site since 1970.

We provide quality early childhood education for children aged 3.5 years to school age. The Kindergarten operates as a single unit centre offering a kindergarten programme based on the Early Years Learning framework.

We believe that children learn best by providing an environment where they feel safe, secure, accepted, and welcomed. Our role is to nurture each child to develop a sense of belonging and understand the importance of being an individual, a member of the Kindergarten group and wider community. Our role is to provide a vibrant and flexible environment that is responsive to the interests and abilities of each child, promoting autonomy and the love of learning.

We create a program in partnership with children that supports each child, catering to rights of the child and the right to their own culture, religion and language. We believe that respectful learning is child orientated and initiated; our role is to provide a program that caters for all stakeholders. Boondall Community Kindergarten can offer excellent employee benefits and professional development opportunities for early childhood educators. We are committed to an inclusive workforce and strongly encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.
