Discover, imagine and create.

Kindergarten at Mount Carmel College is built upon the foundation of learning through play. It is designed to provide interesting, diverse and challenging experiences that gives children the opportunity and time to build confidence, social skills and independence in a secure and nurturing environment.

The Early Years Learning Framework: ‘Belonging, Being and Becoming’, aims to stimulate social, emotional, cognitive, linguistic, creative, and physical development.

Our exciting new Kindergarten development is coming this year, designed with our youngest students’ experiences in mind.

Applications for Kindergarten at Mount Carmel College in 2024 are now being accepted.

The best way to discover our Kindergarten program is to see it in action. Contact our Enrolments Officer to arrange a personal tour. Applications close on Friday 5 May, 2023

Kindergarten Days

We offer flexibility for families with Kindergarten operating five days a week at our Hobart campus for four and five year old girls.  Parents are asked to nominate their preferred Kindergarten days with a minimum of three days and the option of nominating additional days.

Changing and adding extra days to the already nominated days will be subject to availability of space and ensuring optimal class sizes.
