Since 1937, Ipswich Kindergarten has created a proud history of tradition and close ties between the home, kindergarten and the Ipswich community. We aim to facilitate and scaffold learning in an environment in which children are supported, respected, stimulated and encouraged through authentic, challenging and engaging learning experiences.

The program at Ipswich Kindergarten promotes learning through a play and inquiry based curriculum, encompassing learning experiences and interactions which are both emergent and planned. Our curriculum is informed by the Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines. Ipswich Kindergarten operates under the National Quality Framework (NQF) which incorporates the Education and Care Services National Law Act (2010), Education and Care Services National Regulations (2011) and National Quality Standard.
