Home - Stirling East Kindergarten

We are committed to high-quality education in a safe, caring and vibrant environment. Our large outdoor play area will encourage your child to explore and take risks, to have open-ended interactions and to develop a deeper connection with nature. We respond to the individual interests and abilities of your child and we work with you to maximise their learning potential.

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

We acknowledge that Stirling East Kindergarten is built upon traditional land and pay respect to past, present and future Elders. We acknowledge the deep feelings of attachment and relationship of the traditional owners to this land and their ongoing custodianship. We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Australian Aboriginal people visiting from other areas.

Bushfire risk

On forecasted 'catastrophic' fire danger days we will be closed. Parents are contacted the day prior to a catastrophic closure. All families are advised to have and activate their own bushrire survial plans when needed. You can find more information about bushfire from the CFS website. ​​See the bushfire page on the Department for Education's website for general information.

Following changes to the South Australian Public Health Act 2011 (the Act), from 7 August 2020, children will not be able to enrol in or attend early childhood services unless all immunisation requirements are met.

The Act requires:

• An early childhood service must not enrol a child if all immunisation requirements are not met.

• A child cannot attend, or continue to attend, an early childhood service if all immunisation requirements are not met.

• Early childhood services must keep a current copy of an approved immunisation record for each child enrolled in, or attending that service.

• Approved immunisation records must be supplied by parents/guardians to the early childhood service at specified times.

These changes have been introduced to ensure a rapid response in the event of an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease.

There are some approved exemptions. Parents and guardians should speak with their medical practitioner about whether exemptions to being vaccinated are considered valid.
