Home - Bridgewater Kindergarten

Our kindergarten provides a safe, caring and stimulating environment in a bushland setting. We encourage children to explore, take risks, question, discover and have an active voice in their learning. We work with families to support children's learning and development and are committed to open communication between staff and families. Our large outdoor area includes space for ball games, climbing, a mud kitchen, vegetable garden, fruit trees, and a butterfly garden.

Volunteering

If you’d like to volunteer with us, we’d love to hear from you. You might be able to help out with cooking, gardening, maintenance work or sharing an interest or talent you have. See volunteering in schools, preschools and children’s centres and have a chat to us about how you can get involved.

We invite you to join the governing council, which meets twice a term to ensure the smooth running of the preschool. Read through what a governing council does and speak to us to register your interest.
