Welcome to the Deadly Kindy program!

What is a Deadly Kindy?

A Deadly Kindy is a kindergarten program for children aged 3 ½ to 4 ½ years old, which provides a safe, flexible and fun environment for your child to develop a love of learning while being immersed in culture.  We understand the importance of your child’s kindergarten year in preparing them for their transition to school.

What will my child learn?

At kindy your child will learn through play.  They will explore, create, investigate, experiment, imagine, extend their knowledge and develop relationships with others.  They will be given opportunities to gain confidence in social settings, to develop relationships and become resilient negotiators.  Going to kindy will help your child learn early literacy and numeracy concepts and develop communication skills to help their reading and writing.

The Deadly Kindy difference

Our Deadly Kindys have a focus on supporting and strengthening children’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity through programs that are inclusive of the children’s culture, language and learning styles.  As a parent or carer of a young child, you are the main influence on your child’s development.  Deadly Kindy exists to help you with this important role.

Our program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the Queensland Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines (QKCG).  Deadly Kindys values the importance of play-based programs and is child centered, driven by observations of the children and also input from families and the community.

Children’s healthy development is vital for their learning and wellbeing and lays the foundation for a happy and healthy life. Families have access to a range of ATSICHS services and programs including:
