About Us

Konomi Kindergarten is a private, 60 place Long Day Education & Care service. The centre is licensed by the Department of Education & Communities and is overseen by the Australian Children's Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).

 

Our Centre consists of 60 places for children aged 2-5 years. Our aim is to provide a bilingual (Japanese/English quality service that meets the needs of the families in our community.  Working in collaboration with our families in providing high quality care and education in the early years is our best interest because we know that early stage of development is the most important stage for learning. We invite our parents to be part of our learning program. Please note that if you wish to participate in the program where your child is not within the group you will need to have a "Working With Children's Check" and "Child Protection" inservice completed.

 

Hours of Operation:

Opening Hours: 8am to 6pm: This is made up of:

8am-10am Arrival and Educational self-selected Activities, weather permission outdoor/indoor

10am-4pm Education Programmes, indoors/outdoors

Konomi Kindergarten is open for fifty weeks per year, closing for two weeks over the Christmas/New Year period, and on public holidays.

 

The Centre closes at 6 pm each evening. We recommend family members arrive at least 15 minutes earlier than 6 pm. This allows time to collect your child and read the daily learning journal and have a talk with the educators if you need.
