Our Kindergartens


Witherlea Kindergarten provides a welcoming, relaxed, vibrant and stimulating learning environment for young children. We are richly resourced to support their emerging interests and we are passionate about their creativity. Our edible garden creates another inviting space for children to play, learn about and care for.

Art, music, literacy, numeracy and physical skills are strengths within our kindergarten where children enjoy the freedom to explore, express and learn in a supportive, creative environment.

As children get older, different arts and crafts require more complex thinking skills and many activities need an understanding of basic science concepts for them to make sense.

Mixing specific colors or creating a mosaic pattern may seem like creative activities but without an intellectual component the creativity falls apart. As your child learns these skills in a creative area, they can transfer them to other areas of their life as well.


Children can be enrolled for the following sessions
