About Caloundra Community Kindergarten

Steeped in history, our Kindergarten has been around for almost 60 years. In fact, we are a 3rd generation Kindy and we're proud to say that we have families where grandparents, parents and children have all passed through our doors.  We are very proud of our long standing relationships in the community and with local businesses.

Community kindergartens are distinguished from other early childcare settings in a number of ways. Importantly, we are a not-for-profit organisation. Therefore, active parent/family involvement is essential to the successful operation of our kindergarten.  We rely on parents’ involvement in the governance of the centre, through the Management Committee. There are many other ways parents can contribute, including: being involved on parent roster, working bees, and participating in fundraising activities.   Parent & Carer involvement will provide the children with the priceless benefit of a vibrant and dynamic Kindy experience!


“The Caloundra Kindy really is woven into the fabric of the Caloundra community. For over 50 years the kindy has prepared our kids for all that life presents to them, from one generation to the next. From modest beginnings back in the 1960’s the Caloundra Kindy still embraces a set of values that allow our young boys and girls to live, laugh and learn in a great environment”.
