Old Macdonalds Country Kindy caters for children aged two to six years. Our day has a light structure with children engaging in a morning mat time in their age groups and then choosing activities. After lunch we have a quiet time when some children sleep and others rest while listening to a story or some music.

Inside activities include puzzles, a house corner, dress-ups, construction toys, a reading corner and a range of activities that vary from day to day.

Under the verandah children can go to the art area or to the collage tables.

Outside we have an adventure playground with a fort, slides, climbing frames and boxes. There is also a bridge that sometimes becomes a ship’s deck, a mountain pass or a bridge to nowhere. A large roof provides shelter to our sandpit and a deck area so that children can be out in the fresh air without getting wet when it rains.

We have a separate garden area with vegetable gardens and child-size BBQ tables. There is a worm farm, compost, and some incredible edible fruit trees as well. This makes a lovely area for lunching and it exposes the children to ideas about growing things.

We try to have all children visit the farm at least once each week and most visit more often than this. The children love the animals and develop great confidence as they eventually allow some animals to eat from their hands.  Riding horses or taking a tractor ride are the ultimate experience for some children.

Our Transition to School Programme focuses on extending and challenging the children in a number of areas, including literacy and numeracy.  Our four year olds participate in a structured morning session.  They love it!

We are open from 7.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. If you wish to learn more, or are considering enrolling your child, please contact us or pop in and visit us!
