The staff at Marchant Park Kindergarten love their kindy. It’s located within their favourite parkland of 7th Brigade Park. Situated on the border of Geebung, many children attend the kindy from nearby suburbs like Wavell Heights, Aspley, Chermside and Zillmere.
A nurturing, family friendly and child-focused kindergarten
Comments from the families at Marchant Park Kindergarten make it clear that they feel that their kindy genuinely and consistently provides an Early Childhood education that is authentically child focused and family friendly, in a truly nurturing environment.
Every day, the children of Marchant Park are leading the play, with their teachers extending their learning, linking and guiding their experience in accordance with the Queensland Kindergarten learning guidelines and the Early Years Learning Framework. These curriculums honour every child’s right to play in a safe, inviting, natural environment. Marchant Park Kindy is where children and families belong, they pride themselves on the fact they are a community run Kindy. Marchant Park is affiliated with Lady Gowrie.
Consistency is key
Being a single stream kindy (only one class unit per day), the children at Marchant Park Kindergarten thrive within a nurturing environment with consistent and regular known playmates and attendance times. Importantly, the same qualified teacher and assistant are with the children every day throughout the year. It’s beautiful to watch this relationship between the teacher and child develop throughout the year. Kindy really does become their second home and this level of consistency is designed to informally mirror the coming school years and narrows the sometimes daunting transition from Kindy to formal education at Prep.
