Gumera Learning Haven explains the Queensland Government’s new Free Kindy Initiative.

We at Gumera Learning Haven believe that every child deserves access to quality early education, regardless of financial constraints. That’s why we are thrilled to explain the Queensland Government’s Free Kindy Initiative, which offers families free access to kindy for eligible-aged children enrolled in government-approved programs. This initiative aligns with our passion for nurturing inclusive and thriving communities by removing barriers to entry and empowering children to reach their full potential.

Understanding the Free Kindy Initiative

Commencing on January 1, 2024, the Free Kindy Initiative guarantees free access to kindy for eligible-aged children enrolled in government-approved programs, which includes Gumera Learning Haven. Whether attending a sessional kindergarten or a kindergarten in long day care, families now can benefit from 15 hours of kindy per week, spanning 40 weeks annually, without any financial burden.

Our Commitment to Enriched Learning Experiences

Our kindergarten program adheres to government-approved standards, offering 15 hours per week (600 hours per year) of enriching educational experiences. Tailored for children aged at least 4 years by 30 June in the year before they commence school, our program is designed to align with developmental milestones, ensuring a comprehensive curriculum that nurtures growth and prepares children for the next steps in their educational journey.

The Developmental Benefits of Kindy for Your Child

Embracing a holistic approach, our kindy program blends structured lessons, hands-on activities, and play-based learning to offer a well-rounded education that transcends traditional boundaries. This comprehensive curriculum is designed to ignite a love for learning while equipping your child with essential skills for their educational journey.

By participating in an approved kindy program, your child will benefit from the following:

  • Building confidence and school readiness
  • Identifying, exploring, and solving challenges
  • Developing literacy and numeracy skills
  • Improving social skills and cooperation
  • Using language effectively to express emotions and ideas
  • Cultivating self-discipline

At Gumera Learning Haven, our Kindergarten Program is not just an educational journey; it’s a heartfelt commitment to the growth, happiness, and success of your child.
