You and your children can sing along with kindy ambassador (and father of eight) Jay Laga’aia, as he sings the Kindy Song.
Kindy is a place to learn through play and make friends, and soon it could have the whole family singing…
Makes me want to smile.
Tiny little fee,
They laugh and play
And run all day.
Choose kindy first you’ll see,
Kids learn so easily,
With teachers showing how
To build a sandcastle or moo like a cow.
Their days are filled with things that teach our little ones through play.
They draw and sing, thread beads through stings.
Then cry when their folks come ’cause they want to stay.
I sing this song for you to get the message through,
That learning should be fun
And kindy’s the place to educate.
Our young mums and dads will really be glad
Their children have made a start,
’cause learning to read will help them succeed.
Don’t wait or hesitate, educate and be smart.
So if your child is turning 4, why don’t you give them the best start in life?
Enrol them now in a Queensland Government-approved kindergarten program,
Where they will learn, while making friends.
Play pretend is what we recommend.
Kindy’s where you learn, while making friends.
Before it gets too late, as a a father of 8,
My kids are kindy kids and I think that’s great.
