The Brook Early Education and Care

Approved Kindergarten Program in Brisbane

Our early childhood education service at The Brook operated a QLD Government Approved Kindergarten Program for children in the year prior to attending Prep. Subsidies are available for eligible families, contact us to find out more. 

Children who participate in a quality early education program enjoy a flying start to learning and life.


Kindergarten programs offer a safe and caring environment in which children can build confidence in their abilities, extend their skills and have fun while learning. By participating in a kindergarten program, children discover new learning experiences and establish relationships that create a strong foundation for their future education.”

What will my child learn at kindergarten?

Children learn through play. In a kindergarten program, your child will participate in play-based learning experiences designed to encourage a child’s physical, social, intellectual, language and emotional abilities.


Under the guidance and care of a qualified early childhood teacher, your child will:


• Use language to communicate ideas, feelings and needs

• Make friends and learn how to cooperate with other children

• Become more independent and confident in their abilities

• Develop self-discipline

• Use their creativity to express ideas and feelings through art, dance and dramatic play

• Identify, explore and solve problems.


Participation in a kindergarten program will help your child learn early literacy and numeracy concepts and develop communication skills that will assist with reading and writing.


Most importantly, a kindergarten program will help your child develop a love of learning and be better prepared to start school.” Kindy Counts Brochure, QLD Government 2012.  For further information, visit Queensland Government: Kindergarten Training.
