Strathalbyn Kindergarten & Outreach

Welcome to our Kindergarten

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.

Strathalbyn Kindergarten Outreach

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 Values
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.

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