Stirling East Kindergarten is situated in the Adelaide Hills between Stirling and Aldgate - close to the freeway and only 20 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. We are located on Snows Road, within walking distance of the Stirling East Primary School. The kindergarten is managed by the Preschool Director and Governing Council.
Children come to our kindergarten from nearby townships. Our feeder schools include: Stirling East; Crafers; Heathfield; Scott Creek; Upper Sturt; Aldgate; Mylor; Bridgewater; and several Independent Schools.
Stirling East Kindergarten is committed to providing high quality early childhood education in a safe, caring environment that is vibrant, flexible and responsive to the interests and abilities of each child. We work in close partnership with families, recognising and valuing their place as children's first educators. We believe that that optimum learning and development occurs when staff, parents, caregivers and children work together.
Our large natural outdoor play environment invites open-ended interactions, spontaneity, risk-taking, exploration, discovery and a deeper connection with nature. There is space for ball games, a mud kitchen, quiet spaces, climbing areas, a vegetable garden, fruit trees and large shaded areas including the naturally-shaded sandpit, and a nature cubby and walkway created from native and garden plants. The indoor area is spacious allowing ample room for a wide variety of learning stations including writing, reading, numeracy, art, and construction. The area is well lit with ample natural light.
