At St. John’s Lutheran Kindergarten Kingaroy, we provide a safe, warm and comfortable environment, in which play and the fostering of social skills are highly valued. Being outdoors is central to the experiences we provide for children. An expansive sandpit, a cubby house, productive vegetable and herb gardens, a purpose built bike track and a full size dinghy provide scope for imaginative, creative, investigative and social play.
The Kindergarten utilizes the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline to devise a program in which daily storytelling, singing, dancing, regular cooking experiences and plenty of time for play is interwoven with learning in a Christian environment.

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.
