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.
