Why Choose Us

Palmwoods Community Kindergarten is situated right in the heart of the Palmwoods Community. 2022 marks 50 years of service in our community which will culminate in our special Open Day Celebration on Saturday 3rd of September 2022. Our reputation for excellence comes from the hard work and support of families, the curiosity and wonder of children,  the dedication of passionate educators, and our connection to a supportive broader community.

We are a community managed not for profit service that is managed by a team of Parents who form our Management Committee. Palmwoods Community Kindergarten is affiliated with C&K Childcare and Kindergarten Association who support our Management Committee and Educators in their respective roles. We have a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer who are responsible for running of our service. Families are our partners and have say in important decisions at our Kindy. Our service is funded through the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme and our Quality Improvement Plan is driven by all stakeholders in our Community. Projects to improve our service are achieved through fundraising, sponsorship and grant applications and all profits go directly towards resources for our children.

We offer a large natural outdoor space that encourages children to investigate, explore and experiment. Our shady established trees attract an array of wildlife into our garden which in turn offers opportunities for children to observe, research and Connect to Country. We have recently renovated our veranda to enable a larger weatherproof space for learning whilst looking out over our beautiful grounds.

We are dedicated to reducing our ecological footprint and supporting children to take positive steps to care for the environment as stewards of the land.

Our Educators are highly experienced, deeply reflective and passionate Early Childhood Professionals. They are advocates for children and families and work together in partnership with families to support each child to reach their potential.
