What we offer - West Lakes Shore Kindergarten

We offer a number of programs and services to support your child’s early years learning.

This includes a high-quality early years educational program, planned and delivered by qualified early childhood educators. It is a play-based learning program that focuses on supporting children to be capable and competent learners. We foster the development of independence, resilience and the belief that their talents can be developed. These things build strong foundations for life.

What to bring

We want children to carry their own belongings into kindy and put them in the right places without the help of an adult. This helps them to learn how to get things done, develop ownership and know where to locate their belongings during the day.

Children need to bring these items each day:

  • bag
  • hat
  • change of clothes
  • drink bottle containing water only (placed inside on the shelf)
  • fruit or vegetable snack (this stays in their bag outside in the lockers)
  • packed lunch with ice block to keep it cool (placed inside on the shelf)
  • raincoat and gumboots for wet-weather play.

Please write your child’s name on all their belongings.

Out of school hours care

This is only for children who are 5 years old. It is offered by West Lakes Shore School R-7. Please call 8449 7255 for more information.
