BUNDABERG’S first Catholic kindergarten will open next week adjacent to St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, in Woondooma St.

Diocesan Director of Catholic Education Leesa Jeffcoat said Catholic Education in Bundaberg started more than 140 years ago at St Joseph’s and was pleased to be able to continue to grow their services in this area to offer a quality educational choice for Bundaberg families from early learning through to Year 12.

The new Catholic kindergarten is said to offer the endorsed Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline providing opportunities for children to engage, through a play-based approach, in learning across the intellectual, language, emotional, physical, social and spiritual dimensions.

“In addition, our new kindergarten will implement the Framework for Early Years Spiritual

Development in the Catholic Tradition developed by Catholic Education which provides an early years program that nurtures each child’s innate spirituality and relationship with God,” she said.
