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.

Activities & Incursions

outdoor play

Develops muscular growth and co-ordination and the opportunity to interact socially at their own level of development. Exposure to natural outdoor environments improves children’s cognitive development by improving their awareness, reasoning and observational skills.


music & movement

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.


We subscribe to the Queensland Museum for fortnightly loans and we can organise items that the children are interested in. Borrowed items include bugs, animal skeletons, fossils, rocks and many more exiting items for the children to ask questions about.

What Our Families Are Saying

Enrolling both my sons at Harty Street has been the best decision. The large natural outdoor playground, nurturing environment, dedicated teachers, and engaging curriculum have truly shaped their early learning journey and prepared them well for school. I’ve watched them grow in confidence, social skills, and have a genuine love for learning. I’m grateful for the care and attention that the staff at Harty Street provide, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any parent looking for a fantastic start to their child’s education.”

We are absolutely thrilled with our time at Harty Street. Right from the start, we knew it was a special place where creativity and independence are nurtured.

The teachers are truly gifted at inspiring creative learning. Our child comes home with excitement, eager to share new discoveries and creative projects. The curriculum is designed to engage young minds and encourage imaginative exploration.

What stands out for us is their emphasis on fostering independence. Our child has grown immensely in decision-making, problem-solving, and taking initiative. This kindergarten provides a safe, supportive space for them to learn and navigate the world, laying a strong foundation for the transition to prep. 

As parents, we feel incredibly lucky to have found a kindergarten that aligns perfectly with our values. The caring staff, innovative approach, and welcoming atmosphere make Harty Street a true standout in early education.”

I’m thrilled with the exceptional experience my son is having at Harty Street Kindy. He began in 2022, a little 3 year old in the Pre-Kindy program and is now a thriving confident 5 year old at Big Kindy! 

Harty Street’s play-based program provides a nurturing environment for growth and development. The expansive natural outdoor playground offers endless opportunities for exploration and creativity; and the long-standing, highly qualified staff are dedicated to the learning journey of each individual child.
I highly recommend Harty Street Kindy and I recommend jumping onboard the Parent Club or Management Committee for an even more rewarding kindy experience.”
