About Us

Our Centre is a community-based, non-profit organisation managed by a committee of parents. It is a place where families learn, grow and unite. Mott Park Kindergarten is committed to providing high quality education and is affiliated with the Crèche and Kindergarten Association of Queensland.

We believe children’s education should be engaging, fun and be relevant to their life experiences. Our programs are developed by the staff in conjunction with the children according to their interests, needs and strengths. Our children are encouraged to work together, building a sense of community and understanding for each person’s individual differences.

The kindergarten program is delivered by a specialist early childhood teacher and a trained assistant.

Consistent groups and staffing ensures that your child has continuity in their education. A group of children may work together on a project over many consecutive days.

“The teachers look after us very well.” – Charlotte, age 5

“It’s really fun! You can feel free and play stuff. Even you can learn stuff. Teachers are very nice, they’re not angry. They’re nice and kind and they won’t get cross about you if you do anything.” – Gen, aged 5.

“I am very happy with the staff. They are caring, attentive, supportive (not only of the children, but also of the parents), and have the children’s best interests at heart.” – Greg, 2012 parent
