Welcome to our website. We encourage you to browse our page and find out more about our Kindy.

Seaview Downs Kindergarten provides a caring, stimulating and challenging learning environment where children are nurtured and supported to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success in learning.

Our kindy is well equipped with a range of equipment and resources to support enhanced teaching and learning through our play based curriculum. Staff acknowledge all children's backgrounds, knowledge, skills, values, attitudes and dispositions and value the importance of parents and families as central to each child's learning.

We are situated in a quiet, secluded garden setting. Our large, shady outdoor learning environment provides wonderful spaces for your child to be active and to explore in safe, challenging surroundings.

Parents and visitors to our Kindergarten often comment about how fortunate our children are to have such a wonderful outdoor area which incorporates large shade trees, a new playground structure, a large semi enclosed verandah area and a new lawned area.

We are in the process of planning a major upgrade to our outdoor learning environment to create a greater focus on natural play spaces. We have submitted an expression of interest to DECD to be involved in an Outdoor Learning Area Development project and we are eagerly awaiting the outcome of our submission. Although our outdoor area already provides a great learning space, we aim to create something extraordinary for our children, families and community. Watch this space for updates about this exciting venture!!

We encourage you and your child to visit us and see our Kindergarten first hand. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information.

When can my child start preschool?

Children who turn four before May 1st are eligible to start preschool on the first day of term one in that year

Children who turn four on or after May 1st are eligible to start preschool on the first day of term one the following year.

Session Times

During 2015, the following attendance options are available:

Option 1:
Children attend 5 days per fortnight from 9.00am to 3.00pm

Option 2:
Children attend 2 days per week from 8.30am to 4.00pm

Sessions are currently offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Parents can choose either of the 2 options (subject to availability of places).

Note from the Director (15/8/15): We are currently waiting on confirmation from the Department of Education and Child Development (DECD) regarding the Universal Access Program and possible changes to staffing allocations for 2016. Several decisions are yet to be finalised for 2016 including: the number of hours we are able to offer each child; available session days; and the number of children we can accommodate in our program. Current 2015 session options (as outlined above) are subject to change for the 2016 preschool program (pending confirmation and clarification of the aforementioned matters). We will advise registered families as soon as we receive confirmation of these variables from DECD. Please contact Trudy at the kindergarten if you have any queries about 2016 enrolment. I will endeavour to keep families informed of any decisions as soon as I am able.
