Preschool Gilgandra

Welcome to Aussie Kindies Gilgandra, quality child care in Gilgandra for ages 0-5.

Our passionate educators and teachers are trained and accredited in the Lifelong Learning Curriculum by Affinity Education Group, Australia’s leading provider of early education and child care.

Here at Aussie Kindies Gilgandra, we pride ourselves on creating strong, positive bonds with children, and providing them with the individual care and attention that is essential in early education. We nurture a lifelong love of learning through a combination of play-based and intentional teaching experiences, which helps your child develop social connectivity, emotional confidence, foundational learning, and physical health and wellbeing.

Aussie Kindies Gilgandra has a range of inspiring environments for children to explore. Our centre rooms are set up based on the children’s current level of development and their interests. Our centre also includes a spacious outdoor play area that encourages children to test their limits, build strength, and develop self-confidence.

Our days incorporate messy play experiences, allowing children to use their natural curiosity and engage their senses. Your child will be introduced to literacy and numeracy through fun learning games, and investigate science, technology and the arts. We also offer a range of health and wellbeing activities, and nurture a love of animals, nature and the environment.

Aussie Kindies Gilgandra provides nutritionally balanced meals cooked daily by our onsite chef, an inclusion that is unique to Affinity Education Group child care centres. All nappies are included, plus you can stay connected with your child’s progress and receive updates about their day through our Storypark platform.

We know you’re busy and that deciding on child care and early education is a huge task. We are here to help you though! Our dedicated Family Support Team is available to answer any questions you may have about our programs, services, and subsidies available to your family.

Big Thinkers STEM Program

Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) has always played a vital role in the development of our Lifelong Learning Curriculum for children in our preschool rooms (3-5 years*).   

The Lifelong Learning Curriculum - Big Thinkers STEM program is aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework, ensuring:  

Your child has a strong sense of identity - Through creating a safe secure and supported learning experience, your child will develop their emerging autonomy, inter-dependence, resilience, and sense of agency; through this, developing on their self-confidence with encouraging interaction with care, empathy and respect. 

Flexible Sessions

To make the most of the CCS available to you, we also offer the option of 10-hour or full-day sessions. This means your fortnightly CCS hours can be spread out over more days. Talk to one of our Family Support Consultants on 1800 CHILD CARE. We can help you determine if you qualify to receive the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) and provide you with a quote.

Some families can also get extra support on top of the CCS through the Additional Child Care Subsidy (ACCS).
