Looking for a Kindy in Hervey bay?
Welcome to Sunshine Kindy!
We welcome you to Sunshine Kindy – Christian Education and Care Service at Bayside Christian College Hervey bay. Sunshine Kindy is a centre where each child in our care is supported along their individual journey as they grow in their love of God, love of others and love of learning.
You have cared for and nurtured your child from birth and seen your child develop and grow within your home. Home represents the first and most important avenue of learning in your child’s life and the influence of the home is especially significant in the education of your child. The next phase in your child’s growth is their enrolment in Sunshine Kindy. This is a further step towards the formal years of schooling and we are excited about the possibility of working in partnership with you.
We believe your child is a unique and special gift from God. Your child’s sense of self and awareness of God will develop through the love, kindness, patience, dependability and trust modelled by loving parents, teachers and members of the school community. At Sunshine Kindy we aim to inspire your child’s love of learning through supporting their social awareness, emotional maturity, communication skills, critical learning, physical development and spiritual growth.
Our Kindy program will extend your child’s spiritual, social, emotional, physical and educational environment beyond the home but in partnership with the home. We are excited about the opportunity to continue your child’s journey in faith and education. Our prayer is that with confidence your child will then continue their schooling, healthy in mind, body and spirit and secure in God’s loving hands.
We are blessed to have you join us and look forward to the exciting times that your child’s enrolment will bring.
Our Service accepts enrolments of children aged between 3 and 5 years of age. Children’s names are placed on a Waiting List in order of application date. Children can be enrolled for up to five days per week. Health Care Card Subsidy (Kindergarten Funding Scheme) is available for eligible families with a current Health Care Card.
Sunshine Kindy fully supports the vision, mission and philosophy statements of Bayside Christian College.
