Home - Smithfield Plains Kindergarten

Our kindergarten promotes children’s freedom to explore and discover in a natural environment. We recognise each child is unique and children learn about the world around them through play-based experiences, investigation, discovery, dramatic play, art and social interactions. We encourage children to follow their interests and guide us in their learning by sharing their knowledge, ideas and feelings. We build trusting and respectful relationships with children to ensure successful learning.

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.

Acknowledgement of Country
