Kindergarten at Mount Carmel College is built upon the foundation of learning through play.
Mount Carmel College offers flexibility for families with Kindergarten at our Hobart campus operating five days a week for four and five year old girls.
Our extended Kindergarten program aims to assist families in managing their weekly commitments, providing more flexibility in the number of days their child can attend Kindergarten.
Applications for Kindergarten in 2023 are now open.
Contact our Enrolments Officer to arrange a personal tour.
Our Kindergarten program is play-based, inquiry-led and child centred. 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.
Kindergarten class at our Hobart campus operates five days a week, with three compulsory ‘core’ days. Parents have the option of nominating additional days each week.
Changing and adding extra days to the already nominated days will be subject to availability of space and ensuring optimal class sizes.
At Mount Carmel we offer affordable fees and easy payment options to suit all families. Tuition fees for Kindergarten in 2022 and 2023 are a flat fee per annum irrespective of the number of days nominated.
