About this centre

Hilda Booler Kindergarten offers a preschool program for children aged 3 to 5 years. This licensed centre has a strong focus on quality interaction and education that is designed to help prepare your child for school.

Our program is based on the national early years learning framework, which focuses on children's interests, strengths and individual needs. Our educators work closely with the children to develop a play-based program that is enriching and encourages collaborating with peers, making choices while building on their strengths and emerging skills. The experiences we offer foster children's social, creative, language, cognitive and physical skills.

The program runs Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4pm, during school term. A school holiday care program operates in conjunction with the Broughton Street Kindergarten, also in Glebe.
