Spring Road Community Kindergarten (Inc) offers an affordable, alternative location to on-site public school-based kindergartens, providing a gradual approach to formal schooling. Community kindergartens are welcoming and friendly, offering play-based programs which cater solely for the needs of the 4 year old age group (the year before compulsory schooling).
We are a government-funded kindy which enables us to keep our fees low. As we own the kindy building we do rely on parents to assist us with fundraising each year to keep our beautiful kindy in operation. The play-based nature of community kindergartens give children the opportunity to learn through play, in a nurturing and informal setting, away from primary school schedules and procedures.
At Spring Road Community Kindergarten, there is a strong emphasis on outdoor play – to foster the development of fundamental movement skills, imaginative play, experimentation, investigation and social interaction, to build a solid foundation for their future primary school years.
Spring Road Community Kindergarten is one of only two community kindergartens in WA which own their own building and site. This was a major achievement by many dedicated and community-spirited past parent committees, who were instrumental in working together to achieve this goal and ensuring continuation of this vital community service.
