Kindy Philosophy:

At Moonie State School Kindergarten we aim to build confidence, creativity and a love for learning. We engage children through age-appropriate experiences that are learner-centred in a play-based setting, and support the children at all stages to develop a 'pride in achievement'.

We value our relationships with families and the community, and strive to form positive partnerships with both. We are committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment, and a program that is responsive and reflects the needs and interests of each child, family and the community.

We believe children come to Moonie State Scho9ol Kindergarten as capable individuals and through our integrated model, we strive to continue to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to enable each child to reach his/her potential.
