​The eKindy program is a comprehensive ‘at home’ kindergarten program for children in the year before Prep. The program is supported by a qualified early childhood teacher and covers 15 hours of Kindergarten for 40 weeks a year (school terms only). The program aligns with the early years learning framework and the Queensland kindergarten learning guideline.
In 2017, a child will be eligible for eKindy if
 They 4 by June 30 2017
 The child or a parent is an Australian citizen/permanent resident
 The family/child fits one of the legislated eligibility categories – Distance (live at least 16 km from the nearest early childhood service), Medical or Travelling/itinerant.
The waiting list for the 2017 program is now open. If you are aware of any children in our community who are interested in taking part in the eKindy program in 2017, a waiting list form is available through the school office.

Is your child starting school in 2017?
An invitation to participate in a research project.
When children start school they experience a lot of changes. We now understand that at the same time, parents also experience changes as their child starts formal schooling. This research project is interested in interviewing parents about the changes that they experience and the adjustments that they need to make as their child starts school.
If you are interested in volunteering to be part of this research project, please contact the researcher - Grant Webb: email - grantawebb@bigpond.com or phone 0402409535
This project has been approved by the CQUniversity Human Research Ethics Committee, approval number: H16/04-093.
