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.

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.
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.
