Welcome to the Saint Joseph’s Kindergarten Webpage! We hope you will come and visit at least once a term.

The children have settled in beautifully and are eager and enthusiastic. Our new Kindy room is finally complete and we have started enjoyed the extra space!

At Saint Joseph’s we believe in a holistic learning approach that includes skills for life and skills for curriculum. Our Investigative Learning Approach develops skills for life, that is, children who are resilient, emotionally intelligent, self motivated, who can think for themselves and who can navigate life’s challenges. These skills work alongside the skills of curriculum areas; such as literacy, numeracy, science and other areas.

We also understand that teaching children animal care and conservation is an important part of the Early Years Curriculum. We believe the best way to foster these values in our students is through hands on experiences and last week, our friends at WestOz Wildlife helped us do just that! The Kindergarten students, as part of the incursion, were able to see and touch a variety of species of wildlife including a dingo, a koala and some snakes. They learnt about the basic dietary requirements of each animal, where they live and why they look the way they do. The session also included information about endangered species and snake safety.

Please look through our photo gallery to see the children at Investigative Play and enjoying the WestOz Wildlife incursion.

Mrs Vanessa Lenzarini, Ms Heys and Mrs Greenham.
