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.
