Kindergarten, known as kindy, is a part-time educational program for children in the year before school. Attending a kindy program lets your child learn through play, make friends and prepare for the transition to school. Approved kindergarten programs are play-based, delivered by a qualified early childhood teacher and meet government guidelines to support children's participation in quality early childhood education.
