Craigslea Kindy staff strive for a close teacher/child bond. This relationship is achieved through the play-based environment which is both informal and friendly to encourage both personal expression and development. This also stimulates respect for and understanding of the individuality of others.

With over 68 years combined experience in early childhood, and a long history of community participation the team at C&K Craigslea Kindergarten offer an experienced approach and balanced environment for your child's learning. All staff are fully qualified and maintain a high level of current knowledge through regular training and conference attendance. 

Linda Hows

I have been in the area of educations for over 25 years, firstly as a high school teacher and then in the area of early childhood education. I have a long association with the centre as my four girls also attended the centre. They are now in high school and at University. My husband Stephen is also a teacher. Every day working with young children brings such a joy. It is always a privilege to be a part of these young children and families' lives.
