Elizabeth O'Grady Kindergarten

Welcome to Elizabeth O'Grady Kindergarten


Our vision is to provide a caring, safe and engaging environment where children can play and enjoy learning.

Our aim is to deliver a curriculum that considers each child’s background, needs and interests. Our curriculum is guided by the National Early Years Learning Framework. The core values that influence our actions are respect, inclusion and cooperation.

Our role is to support the development of each child’s sense of well-being. We believe this is the basis for developing positive learning dispositions such as curiosity, confidence, persistence and resilience.

We strive to maintain quality teaching practices that support the development of children’s knowledge, life skills and dispositions. We undergo a constant cycle of reflection and self-review through the use of the Quality Improvement Plan and the Respect Reflect Relate document.

We actively promote environmental sustainability.

We nurture a supportive partnership with families which is responsive to the needs of our diverse community.
