Our Service accepts enrolments of children aged between 3 – 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 (5) days per week. HEALTH CARE CARD SUBSIDY (KINDERGARTEN FUNDING SCHEME) is available for eligible families with a current Health Care Card.
As a ministry of the Bayside Christian College, we believe that the Biblical worldview be reflected in all aspects of the curriculum.
Sunshine Kindy aims to provide a Biblical-based curriculum; and provides a Biblical worldview to “help children see the world through God’s eyes”.
Sunshine Kindy’s programs are also guided by The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for Australia.
At Sunshine Kindy we use the YOU CAN DO IT (YCDI) program to supplement our curriculum experiences in children’s Wellbeing. We also enjoy the Bonkers Beat Music Program, Magic Fingers, Ella, Sound Waves and other empirically proven learning tools.
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.

What Our Families are Saying
“Both my girls have had great experiences at Sunshine Kindy. Every morning they wake up looking forward to going to Kindy and come home eager to share what they did and learnt. They enjoyed the Bonkers Beat progamme and learning some AUSLAN as well as forming some special bonds with the educators and friends.” – Michelle
“Our daughter has attended a few Kindy’s in the local area and she says this is her favourite. She always comes home with a smile and a story to tell us about the cool things she did at school. She says that Ms. Amy and Ms. Jackie are her best teachers, cause they are so nice and reads her lots of stories. She likes all of her new friends and has so much fun at all the playgrounds around the school. We like the personal touches that Mrs. Sue provides through her communication and can tell she really cares about all the students. We would recommend this Kindy without reservation to anyone.“
Jason and Magdalena
Sending my daughter to kindergarten was a big decision for me. I wanted a place that was warm and caring, where my daughter would feel comfortable. From the moment I walked into the Sunshine Kindy I knew it was special, it felt like a home where the kids were a part of a big family. Over the next two years my daughter blossomed in this environment under the care of the fabulous staff, who genuinely cared for and nurtured each child in their journey.
