The entire team at Gan Gani Community Kindergarten is committed to ensuring our children can be themselves in a safe environment whilst receiving a nurturing, play based educational experience.
Our kindergarten education programs are all designed and informed by our philosophical commitment to creating a safe space where our children can really be themselves.
We embed our philosophy in our emergent curriculum at every level.
Gan Gani is a place where kids can learn, discover, explore and grow to become lifelong learners.
We focus on teaching our children how to think, not what to think.
Starting prep is an important and exciting milestone for your child. Throughout their kindergarten year, your child’s confidence will continually grow and gradually learn a variety of new school-ready skills.
Our educational program is entirely play based. We draw on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and the Early Years Learning Framework to inform our best practice in early childhood education and learning.
Our daily play based education programs include:
Gan Gani Kindergarten is focused on incorporating a Jewish curriculum in its multicultural program. Our educational curriculum is underscored by the value of the Jewish heritage and cultural traditions of our founding community and Jewish families.
Our cultural traditions are infused in our music, art, stories, cooking and food. We run daily, weekly and annual customs and rituals informed by our faith and heritage.
All of our children experience a spiritually uplifting and nurturing environment where connection to faith, family and community is encouraged.
Bruchim ha’baim l’kulam!
That means: welcome to all!
We are proud to be the only community kindergarten in the western suburbs who can provide extended hours for your kindy child through our unique partnership with Brisbane Montessori School’s Outside Hours Care (OHC) Program.
This partnership allows children attending Gan Gani Kindy to access before and after kindy care and vacation care in Brisbane Montessori School’s specialised 3-6 year old OSHC program.
Brisbane Montessori School’s campus adjoins Gan Gani Kindy which means children are transferred directly between the services by staff, ensuring safe continuous care for your child.

Gan Gani Kindergarten’s Vision for Reconciliation
Gan Gani Kindergarten has a strong vision of reconciliation in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians walk together with respect and understanding.
We will continue to celebrate the diverse cultures, ancient knowledge and connections to country of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We will build authentic relationships within our community, working alongside Elders to gain a deeper understanding of culture and knowledge.
We share this respect for culture and country with the kindergarten children to work towards a united and equitable future for all Australians.
Sustainability is an integral part of who we are and how we operate
as a community kindergarten. We foster mindfulness in our daily choices at kindy and
in the home to encourage understanding of the impact of our decisions.
To tread lightly and minimise our footprint on our Earth through sustainable actions and education.
To utilise learning opportunities outdoors to encompass all curriculum outcomes.
To support children so they feel empowered to make a difference.
To enhance our children’s ability to critically engage through discussion, projects and hands-on experiences.
