Child Care Centre Shortland

My Kindy Shortland is ideally located on the grounds of Shortland Public School.  It provides educational preschool programs for children aged 2-5 years with the added bonus of extended hours to cater for working families.  Our operating hours are 6.30 am – 6.30pm, Monday to Friday for 52 weeks of year (closed for public holidays).

There are 3 rooms with the following age groups:

The Junior Preschool Room has a maximum of 16 children aged 2-3 years.  A team of 2 highly experienced and dedicated staff work closely together to nurture this group through their rapid growth and development, including supporting them in developing a greater sense of self and independence.

The 2 Preschool Rooms each have a maximum of 20 children aged 3-5 years. Our highly qualified and experienced teachers design and implement exceptional preschool programs.  The older preschoolers (4-5 year olds) actively participate in our school readiness program.  Our location right next to a primary school enables us to prepare children for a smooth transition to school, regardless of which school they will attend.

Check out our Programs to find out about all the learning that happens in these age groups.  Better still, book a tour and come and see for yourself.
