Kindergarten at Mount Carmel College is built upon the foundation of learning through play.

In 2022, Mount Carmel College is offering flexibility for families with Kindergarten operating five days a week for four and five year old girls.

By extending our Kindergarten program to five days a week, we aim to assist families in managing their weekly commitments, providing more flexibility in the number of days their child can attend Kindergarten.

Applications for Kindergarten 2022 are currently being accepted.

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 Days

In 2022, our Kindergarten class will operate five days a week, with parents asked to nominate a minimum of three days, with 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.

Kindergarten Fees

At Mount Carmel we offer affordable fees and easy payment options to suit all families. Tuition fees for Kindergarten 2022 are a flat fee of $3225.00 per annum irrespective of the number of days nominated.
