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.
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.
Gan Gani Community Kindergarten is a single-class kindy catering for 22 children each day.
We run two groups consisting of two long days and three shorter days each across the week.
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 School Hours Care (OSHC) 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.
After Kindy Care is available until 6.00pm during term time. Children
attending after kindy care will be transferred from Gan Gani Kindy at
3.45pm and escorted to BMS by 4pm.
Vacation care is available during school holidays from 7:30am – 6:00pm, 5 days per week excluding public holidays.
For bookings or information about OSHC for Gan Gani Kindy children,
please call Brisbane Montessori School directly on 07 3324 0600 and let
them know you are a Gan Gani family, or follow this link.
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!
Gan Gani community Kindergarten is proud to be developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to strengthen relationships, respect and opportunities in the classroom, around the school and within the community.
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.
