Padbury Community Kindergarten is a much-loved and respected part of its local community. Our 4 year old kindy program offers families an alternative to school-based kindy, teaching the national curriculum in more a flexible, hands-on and sensory-rich environment. Our play-based approach is proven to prepare children for smooth entry into school, as well as fostering imagination, independence and a life-long love of learning.
