WELCOME TO GINGERBREAD KINDERGARTEN

Providing long day care and preschool for children between the ages of 0 to 5 years

We warmly welcome you to our Boutique, family owned and operated Gingerbread Kindergarten. 

Our team of educators aim to provide a quality preschool program, which promotes in children the desire to learn, engages their curiosity and helps them develop skills to explore and learn from their environment.

At Gingerbread Kindergarten we aim to provide quality child care in a safe, stable, happy and nurturing environment, promoting physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of the children in our care while responding to each and every child's individual needs.  We welcome family involvement at all times and believe it strengthens the links between the home and kindergarten.

Gingerbread has been operating for over 47 years, educating 51 children.

Gingerbread Kindergarten offers the best child care and kindergarten education to local families in Queens Park, Bondi, Bondi Junction, Woollahra, Bronte, Paddington, Centennial Park, Coogee, Clovelly, Randwick, Tamarama, Bellevue Hill and the surrounding Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.

our kindergarten program

The most important goal of our early childhood program is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think their own thoughts. Our goal is to help the children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. We are teaching them how to learn.

We have one of the best school readiness programmes available, taught by experienced educators in a homely, family environment - where kids can be kids!

Our educators use the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia – Belonging, Being and Becoming as the foundation of our program and curriculum. This describes the principles, practices and outcomes that support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to six years of age, as well as their transition to school.

Play is the work of early childhood.

Play provides the foundation for academic learning. It is the preparation children need before they learn highly abstract symbols such as letters and numbers. Play enables us to achieve the key goals of our curriculum.

At Gingerbread Kindergarten, we use a method of programming that is responsive to individual children’s needs, and based on a thorough understanding of young children and their stages of development.

The process begins with teachers observing children each week, recording their observations under a specific developmental area (i.e. social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language).

Although programmed for an individual child’s needs, it is also beneficial for the whole group, and all the children have an opportunity to participate in a variety of experiences.

At the end of the week, the teacher will evaluate the objectives that were set, and record their findings. This information is then used in conjunction with the following week’s planning. The program planning cycle then begins again.

Please note that these developmental records are available for discussion with parents.

Also, the weekly program is on display in the parents’ information area.

The program is designed to:

  • Develop a feeling of self-worth and high self-esteem

  • Develop positive attitudes towards learning

  • Develop a caring attitude towards other people and the environment

  • Develop language and communication skills

  • Develop skills and knowledge in all areas of the curriculum.

The activities we plan for children, the way we organise the environment, select toys and materials, plan the daily routine, and talk with the children, are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start in school.

We recently moved to the area and changing our son's daycare was the greatest concern for us. We've been so fortunate to find Gingerbread! The wonderful team have welcomed us with so much care and have continued to help us settle in. Our little boy is so happy and continues to thrive through learning and making connections with new friends and educators. They've also made sure to check in with anxious mama putting my mind at ease! Thank you so much to Shauna, Sam and the many beautiful educators looking after our precious little guy. Rene Cadey
