Right to Play
The Harty Street Kindergarten C&K educational program will honour every child’s right to play, build on their existing learning from home and provide foundations to be a successful lifelong learner. Your child will experience many opportunities to explore, enquire, solve problems, develop friendships, use their creativity and extend their capabilities in all curriculum areas including language and literacy, numeracy, science, technology and the arts as well as social, emotional and physical development.
Explore our Playground
Our playground is one of the most special elements at Harty Street Kindergarten C&K. The space allows for exploration, friendship development and inspired learning all in a safe, nature-based setting. We are so incredibly grateful to offer this to your child as part of their Harty Street Kindergarten C&K journey.

As well as providing an avenue of expression and creativity, these experiences aid in the development of a range of physical and sensory skills. Children learn to develop spatial and directional awareness, develop coordination and listening skills, explore sounds, musical instruments, singing games and action songs.
This includes painting, collage, clay, dough, drawing, and more. It is another area of creativity and self-expression. Art allows the individual to emerge in a situation in which he/she has complete control and responsibility.

What Our Families Are Saying
“We had a real sense of belonging the moment our child started at Harty Street Kindergarten. We were not only apart of a community as the parents but we got to watch as our son’s imagination and learning blossomed in preparation for the school years ahead.”
“The educators are warm and engaging, plus the facilities are wonderful for the kids to be active as they explore and learn.”
“Both of our sons attended Harty Street Kindy. They both loved their time exploring the huge, nature-based playground and exciting indoor learning activities. The educators are warm, caring and attentive to each child’s individual needs/interests. Community spirit is alive at Harty Street, and as we leave our kindergarten journey, the children and I do so with lifelong friends.”
