About our play based education and educational programs

Starting prep is an important and exciting milestone for your child. Throughout their kindergarten year, your child’s confidence will continually grow and gradually they learn a variety of new school-ready skills.

We welcome each child as an individual with a unique social and cultural background to be acknowledged, respected and treated inclusively.

We acknowledge and pay tribute to our Indigenous elders, past, present and emerging as the traditional custodians of this land on which we meet.

We recognise that each child is a capable and competent learner with their own set of strengths to be nurtured, fostered and extended.

We work to develop trusting, supportive relationships with families to enhance each child’s learning and development.

We value an open, collaborative dialogue with the wider community to build trust, equity and access for all Gan Gani Kindergarten stakeholders.

We celebrate our Jewish cultural and traditional heritage as founded by the Queensland Jewish Kindergarten Association (QJKA), through music, stories and festivals.

We aim to offer a play-based education and emergent curriculum, laying foundations for future wellbeing, learning and growth.

We recognise the varied and extensive knowledge that families bring and welcome children and families as co-contributors to the curriculum.

We believe that all children, families, carers and staff have the right to be in a safe and welcoming environment.

We support children to become aware of and care for their environment, and aim to embed sustainable practice in all aspects of our curriculum, daily practice and policies.

We support children to develop a sense of agency, resilience, self-confidence, empathy and critical thinking within the Early Years Learning Framework of Identity, Connectedness, Well-being, Active Learning and Communicating.
