Car­ing en­vi­ron­ment for chil­dren


THE Gat­ton Kin­der­garten was built in 1955, and is main­tained by the Gat­ton Kin­der­garten As­so­ci­a­tion In­cor­po­rated.

That is, by the par­ents of the chil­dren at­tend­ing each year.

We are a com­mu­ni­ty­based as­so­ci­a­tion, with all in­come rein­vested for the ben­e­fit of the chil­dren and the com­mu­nity.

Un­like pri­vate ser­vices, or cor­po­rate child care which must make prof­its for share­hold­ers, our ser­vices are not for the profit or gain of in­di­vid­ual mem­bers.

The Gat­ton Kin­der­garten recog­nises the value and rich­ness of play as a cat­a­lyst for chil­dren’s learn­ing and their on­go­ing en­gage­ment in mean­ing­ful ex­pe­ri­ences.

When chil­dren play, they ap­proach ex­pe­ri­ences with in­ter­est, own­er­ship, em­pow­er­ment and pos­si­bil­ity.

In ad­di­tion, we ac­knowl­edge that adults play a sig­nif­i­cant and pow­er­ful role in valu­ing and sup­port­ing chil­dren’s play as an im­por­tant learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and ac­tively sup­port that play to make a dif­fer­ence and to the level of learn­ing that oc­curs.


VALUE KNOWN: The Gat­ton Kin­der­garten in­come is rein­vested for the ben­e­fit of the chil­dren.
