  • Our Kindergarten is rated as ‘exceeding the National Quality Standard’.
  • Since 1963, Cannon Hill Community Kindergarten has served local families from Cannon Hill, Morningside, Murrarie, Tingalpa and beyond. We are passionate in our belief that childhood is a unique time of life, to be nurtured and enjoyed in its own right. This is the time where foundations are laid for future health, learning and wellbeing.

    We want children to grow up with the understanding, skills and dispositions to be caring people and effective learners, able to contribute to their world and to enjoy rich and successful relationships with others.

What Can Parents, Carers & Family Members Expect?

How does Kindergarten benefit children?

  • High quality education programs increase children’s life chances.
  • Research tells us that early childhood education and care programs at age 3-4 years is the most consistent and powerful predictor of social and academic attainment in the first year of school. In contrast, the absence of a group-based early childhood education and care experience at this time most consistently predicts poor performance and poor progress. Early education programs not only support the development of early literacy and numeracy but also facilitate the learning of routines that are a prerequisite for successful school participation and attainment.

Why choose Cannon Hill Community Kindergarten?

As parents know, children are active and competent learners. That’s why your child’s early learning is our priority. We focus on expanding your child’s knowledge and skills and providing for their interests. We create a safe, welcoming and stimulating learning environment for your child that:

  • encourages thoughtful play and early literacy and numeracy development
  • promotes a strong sense of belonging and self worth
  • facilitates warm trusting relationships and interactions with others
  • strengthens resilience, critical thinking and intellectual curiosity
  • promotes communication and problem solving
  • develops capacity to express and acknowledge feelings
