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.
We offer 30 hours of kindergarten per fortnight including Universal Access and our Lunch Care program (families provide all snack and lunch foods). Families typically enroll their child(ren) in one of three groups and can vary the amount of time they wish their child to attend. Alternative attendance arrangements are subject to availability - please speak with our Director.
