About St Paul's Anglican Kindergarten

St Paul’s is a warm, welcoming and positive environment for children. It is a place where learning is fun and enduring friendships are made. 

Children are taught life skills while developing resilience and independence. They are encouraged to create, explore, inquire and discover so they can develop and grow.

St. Paul’s has strong, established links with local primary schools and children take regular visits to ensure a smooth transition into their first year of school. St Paul's also offers a Pre-Prep program for older children.

Learn more about the centre's staff, programs, facilities and philosophies on their website.
