Kindulili Early Learning (Previously Peace of Mind Kindergarten) commenced in 2013 as a sessional Kindergarten for children in the year before starting Prep.
In June 2015, the service transitioned to an extended hours (Long Day Care) format and opened additional placements for children in the year before Kindergarten (from 3 years).
In 2021 we opening our 18month - 3 year old space to expand our Kindulili Family. Our Bachelor qualified Early Years Teacher, Amanda works collaboratively with the educator team to provide a flexible kindergarten program based on current research and an holistic approach to childhood.
The two Approved Providers, Kim Ash and Janet Schluter, are hands on and very involved in service operations.
We understand that children in the birth to five years range learn best through playful, relevant experiences. Kindergarten supports children in developing positive life long learning dispositions - Kindergarten is not solely about "preparing for prep".
Children learn through social interaction and role modelling - our age range of 18months -5 years, allows children to experience a spectrum of relationships; from learner to teacher to nurturer.
