McArthur Park Kindergarten

Welcome to McArthur Park Kindergarten

At McArthur Park Kindergarten we have a proud tradition of 50 years of quality care and education.

We have a caring staff team who are dedicated towards meeting the individual needs of each child to ensure positive learning outcomes. We value working in partnerships with families and our close connections within the local community and our successful school transition program.

We are situated in peaceful, serene surroundings opposite natural parklands. The children enjoy a spacious outdoor learning environment with creative play areas including a sandpit with a cascading water course and an elevated timber cubby house and fort.

The indoor learning area is equally spacious and enables the children freedom and space to engage in play based curriculum. The children benefit from a wide range of educational resources. Our children can engage in up to date technology including working on the interactive "Smartboard".

We trust you will enjoy looking through our website and take a few minutes to find out more about McArthur Park Kindergarten and the services we offer.
