St Joseph's Catholic School The Strand


What is Kindergarten?


Kindergarten formally replaces what used to be ‘Pre-Prep'.  Kindergarten is one of the three objectives outlined in the Queensland Government's Flying Start for Queensland Children initiative. 

The kindergarten program provides a balance of intentional teaching and child-initiated learning through inquiry-based and purposeful play environments. Children are given ownership of their learning through the programs.

More information and an enrolment form can be found on the Townsville Catholic Education Office – Catholic Kindergarten page.
