Communities united through play
Strathalbyn Kindergarten operates from two locations - this is a unique model of early years delivery as there are only two in South Australia that operate with an Outreach program for preschool delivery.
Our full time location is situated at 9 Coronation Road Strathalbyn.
Our second location - our Outreach is located with the Strathalbyn Children's Child Care Centre situated at 1A Burkett Drive Strathalbyn.
We offer a range of programs in partnership with parents and the community to meet the needs of individual children and their families.
An average of 15 hours a week of kindergarten is available for your child(ren) per week. Families enrol their child(ren) in one of three groups. Families can vary the amount of time they wish their child to attend.
At the Coronation Road site they can either enrol in the Koala Group or the Possum Group. The times we operate enable us to provide your child with 30 hours per fortnight of kindergarten access. In lieu of 15 hour weeks.
