Specialised preschool program

Pine Street Kindergarten provides a dedicated preschool program for children in their two years before school. We cater for children from three to five years of age, with the children divided into two groups: three to four year old Joeys, and four to five year old Roos.

Our aim is to provide a kindergarten that offers a safe, home-like environment, with a strong anti-bias curriculum. Our educational program is designed to be fun and support your child’s individual needs and interests, while challenging and stimulating your child to try different things.

What our parents say

“My son attended Pine Street Kindergarten, for the 2 years prior to starting school. I only wish that we had known about Pine Street, when he was younger – I would have sent him there from day one.  From the first day we were instantly at ease with the nurturing attitude of the staff and the professionalism they displayed. It is always a daunting and scary decision to make, to change kindergartens, however as soon as I saw how much my son loved the environment, I knew we had made the right decision.

Every day the teachers, welcomed my son, with a “Good Morning Ryan”, so we felt very much part of a wonderful family. The educational programs organised for the kids every day, was varied and interesting – I don’t think any two days were ever the same. My son loved making new friends which was very easy, since the staff encouraged this every day.

Since Pine Street is a converted house, the playgrounds at the back of the house, were huge, – plenty of room for the boys to kick a ball, and be outside in the fresh air and many days the staff would set up obstacle courses throughout the secret garden, which contained a cubby house, swings and a lovely vege garden – such a lovely space for the kids to play in.  The year my son started school, he longed to be back at Pine Street – the idea of going to school, was not a permanent fixture in his mind!!

We have such wonderful memories from Pine Street, and would recommend this kindergarten whole-heartedly, to anyone considering a wonderful start to their child’s educational, social, sporting and emotional life.”
