Callington is currently a small kindergarten with approximately 20 children allowing us the opportunity to work closely with small groups of children. We also have an extensive preschool support program for children with additional needs. We run a play based program that follows the DECD curriculum. We are co-located with the Callington School and many of our children attend this school.
We are an allergy aware centre and run as a nut free zone to cater for children's individual medical requirements.

Play group runs on Friday mornings during term time and is run by a "playgroup" committee of volunteer parents. There is a yearly or termly minimal fee to cover insurance. Kindy staff are also at Kindy during this time and always available to speak to.
Occasional care sessions are for children 2 years and older and are located at the Kindy during the regular Kindy sessions. They are a great way for children to get to know the Kindy staff and routines ready for when they start regular kindy sessions.
Bookings are taken weekly for the next available session we are able to offer 16 places, 8 in the morning and 8 in the afternoon session.
Please ring the Kindergarten to make a booking or for more information.
