Heights College Kindergarten encourages holistic and developmentally appropriate methods of learning. We believe that play-based problem solving with other students and adults is an early learning strategy that has a crucial effect on student development. A secure parent-child attachment, established and supported in the first years of life, and the opportunity and encouragement to participate in play-based problem solving learning with children and adults enhances literacy and numeracy readiness. The eligible age for attendance is turning 4 by the 30th of June.

The Heights College Kindergarten was established in January 2005. It is a Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten, employing degree qualified teachers and offering well-resourced facilities.  Students are able to enrol later in Preparatory and Year 1 through to Year 12 on our single College campus.

We operate under the Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations. We are guided by the National Early Years Learning Framework (ELYF) and use the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG) to inform our teaching and learning practices.

Session Times - There are currently three Kindergarten groups, with two operating on a 5 day fortnight, and one group operating on a 5-day week.

One part time group (called Possums) alternates between Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday one week and Monday and Tuesday the following week from 8:20am to 3pm each day. The other part time group (called Koalas) alternates between Thursday and Friday one week and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the following week from 8:20am to 3pm each day, with Wednesday being the alternate day for both groups.
