WelcomeIcon 2


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.

Our Vision

Our vision is our motto:
"Communities united through play."

To unite our communities through play, we provide a high quality safe, inclusive play based supportive preschool curriculum in partnership with our communities.

Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework: Belonging, Being & Becoming.

Comunities include parents, children, educators, local town communities and our 'feeder' schools.

Our Values

Trust & Respect
Gives young children the confidence to explore and take considered risks.

Nurturing & Caring
Children learn about care and consideration for others. They begin to see alternative points of view and act in respectful ways.

Responsibility & Empowerment
Children strengthen their ability in initiating and accepting some responsibility for themselves, their actions and their environments.
