Kindergarten

St James Lutheran Kindergarten was created with a vision from the St James Lutheran Church Congregation of providing quality Christian education to the community of Hervey Bay.  

This became a reality in 2007, when St James Lutheran Kindergarten was established. St James Kindergarten is conveniently co-located on the grounds of St James Lutheran College.   

Our service is a double room Kindergarten, which operates 48 weeks per year, with an overseeing Service Leader/Director.  The Kindergarten offers 3 to 5 year old children, with a play-based learning environment, where the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and Early Years Learning Framework are the approved curriculums.  Our Kindergarten programs are led by qualified Early Childhood Teachers and Educators, who recognise each child’s potential and are committed to guiding and extending their development and desire for learning.  They provide many opportunities to maximise your child’s learning and development in thinking, communication, sense of self and others, social living, resilience, health, wellbeing, culture, environment and spiritual understanding.

We take a holistic approach to early childhood education, ensuring we provide a safe and secure environment where children feel comfortable to be in control of their own learning, challenge their thinking and take risks to try something new, all within a caring Christian environment and context.

We love and value input from our families within our program and the everyday running of the Kindergarten.  We welcome parent participation and this special partnership encourages, and assists each child to develop to their full potential.

Our Kindergarten is part of the St James Lutheran College Community and offers a safe, supportive and nurturing Christian learning environment.  We are Government subsidy approved for Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate.

We are very proud to be assessed as Exceeding in all 7 areas of the National Quality Standards.

Look forward to meeting with you soon and welcoming new families to our St James community.
