Learning about my world

You already know kindy is a wonderful way for children to make friends, build confidence and get ready to transition to school, but did you know it’s also a great place for children to learn more about the world around them?

Jay Laga’aia explains that the benefits of kindy go well beyond just preparing for school.

‘Did you know more than one in ten Queenslanders speak a language other than English at home?’ he asked.

‘Cultural diversity is one of Queensland’s greatest strengths.

Learning about each other’s cultures at kindy allows our children to walk in each other’s shoes and gives them a greater understanding of the world around them.

‘Every family is welcome at kindy.

‘Make kindy your family too.’

The kindy factsheet provides families with more information on the benefits of a Queensland Government approved kindergarten program.
