Martin Luther Kindergarten opened its doors to the community on February 5th, 2007. It was the culminated efforts of a task force that was set up in 2005 and their industrious work in 2006 that ended up in the creation of Martin Luther Kindergarten.
Special thanks need to be given to Stanley Kuhl who bequeathed funds for the kindergarten, and the task force and the school for their commitment to the service and the community who are now benefiting from the establishment of a wonderful centre.
The opening was celebrated with an official ceremony on the 15th of September 2007 which included the planting of trees by dignitaries and QLECS staff and the unveiling of a plaque to thank Stanley Kuhl for his generous bequeath.
Martin Luther Kindergarten has an exceptional, natural and large outdoor learning enviroment which focuses on nature and sustainable practices. Recently our centre was assessed as Exceeding National Quality Standards in all 7 areas.
Services covered by the National Quality Framework have been assessed and rated against the seven Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. The assessment and rating process aims to drive continuous quality improvement for services and provide families with better information for making choices about their children’s education and care. The overall rating for a service is determined by the combination of the ratings achieved in each Quality Area.
Each state and territory Regulatory Authority undertakes the assessment and rating process. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, ACECQA, is responsible for ensuring consistency in assessment and ratings across Australia, assessing services for the Excellent rating and creating awareness in the sector and community about the assessment and rating process.
