Welcome to Wudinna Kindergarten

At Wudinna RSL Memorial Kindergarten, we believe that ‘Early Childhood is the foundation on which children build their lives. It is not just preparation for adolescence and adulthood, it has an importance in itself’.

We place great emphasis on play-based learning as the way young children learn best, and strong reciprocal relationships with educators support this. Our aim is to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment that accommodates and embraces differences. We have a strong connection to the local community which also ensures a successful program.

Our program is stimulating in order to expand children’s intellectual, physical, social and creative capacities and deepen their capacity to think and learn. We aim to meet the needs of each child and provide opportunity to include children’s voice at every opportunity to enhance dispositions for learning.

We believe that young children learn best when they have a sense of belonging, they are actively engaged and interested. Children need time and opportunity to make choices, think critically and creatively, to problem solve, act independently and to work collaboratively with their peers.

At Wudinna Kindy we want children to be learning life skills and to be making sense of the world around them through play.

“At Wudinna Kindy we are learning for life”

Occasional Care Sessions

Wudinna Kindy’s Occasional Care program is short periods of care for children aged between 2 and 5 years of age. Families can access Occasional Care on either a regular or irregular basis though bookings are made a term in advance. Parents use Occasional Care for a variety of reasons, including casual, shift-work or part-time work; respite care; crisis and emergency care, shopping or attending appointments.

The benefit of Occasional Care is it provides families with the flexibility to leave their children in an caring and interactive early childhood learning environment to play, learn, socialise and interact with other children. Children have the opportunity to learn through play, interact with other children, develop social skills including speech and language skills, numeracy skills and fine/gross motor skills.

Our Occasional Care program is offered twice a week on a Wednesday and is run by Diploma trained Early Childhood Worker.  Session times are from 9.00am to 11.45am and 12.30pm to 3.15pm. Please call the Kindy with any queries or to register your interest in bookings next term 0886802252.
