Waterford West Education and Care Centre provides a government approved Kindergarten Program based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline.

The Kindergarten Program is designed to develop children’s physical, social, intellectual, language and emotional abilities.

This also means that even if you do not qualify for the Kindergarten funding support due to ineligibility you automatically qualify for the socio economic area support for attending our program. With the help of QKFS Plus and SEIFA funding, some of our families only pay around $10 for two days a week in our Kindergarten program.
At Waterford West Education and Care Centre we pride ourselves on providing the best quality of care in the area for the most affordable prices. Please contact our centre director to learn more about out of pocket fees and expenses, and enrol in our Kindergarten Program today!!!
