The perfect community kindergarten synthesis

Gan Gani Community Kindergarten offers children and
their families a lot more than just a kindy

We provide a warm, safe and nurturing community for families from all backgrounds.

Feel cherished

We strive to ensure that each and every child in our care feels cherished and nurtured.

Stay connected

We strive to ensure that each and every child in our care feels cherished and nurtured.

Instil awareness

We instil a sense of respect for and awareness of all cultures with an emphasis on our First Nations’ cultures in our children and work closely with Indigenous Educators to embed this in our curriculum.

Ensure diversity

We embrace diversity, welcome all children, regardless of culture, and are active in connecting with community groups.

Encourage involvement

Our children are encouraged to connect with
nature. Hands-on learning in an integrated
ecosystem is just the beginning.

  • Joining the parents committee and assisting in administration and management.
  • Attending one of the out-of-kindy-hours events or play dates.
  • Volunteering for a day to help with the running of the kindy. (Our children love to have mum or dad at kind for the day!)
  • Pausing at pick-up to share some Challah (special Shabbat bread) and look at your child’s latest creation.

Seek support

We’re supported by a range of affiliates who contribute to the kindy in a variety of ways.

Our kindergarten.
Our community.

Gan Gani Community Kindergarten is a not-for-profit organisation that offers a play-based emergent curriculum and hands-on learning in integrated ecosystems. Our ecosystem includes:
  • Vegetable gardens
  • Chickens
  • Worm farms
  • Native bee hives
  • Composting

Our well equipped centre is a stand alone, single unit, nestled in a quiet part of Fig Tree Pocket with a large semi-rural outdoor setting.
Our multicultural curriculum incorporates a unique focus on Jewish tradition, culture and heritage honouring our founding families and community. We are equally welcoming to all cultures, faiths and traditions.
Our educational focus involves emphasising strong parental involvement, engagement with nature and preparation for prep.
We’re proud to be developing a Reconciliation Action Plan to further strengthen opportunities in both the kindy and larger community.
