Welcome to Holyoake Kindergarten

Welcome to Holyoake Kindergarten, a rural community kindergarten full of fun and laughter, excitement and discovery, exploration and learning.

Our attractive and spacious setting supports children's natural curiosity and love of the outdoors. Together we plant, cultivate and harvest crops in our raised vegetable garden while learning about recycling and sustainability.

Our curriculum is child driven and children are supported to become confident, competent learners able to make decisions and set challenges. Holyoake is a fun, warm and open kindergarten. We invite your participation in kindergarten life and look forward to meeting you and your child.

The event, held at Carnival Park, was a community day based on the theme ‘treasure our children'.
