North Epping Kindergarten is a local community based early childhood service providing high quality programs for 3-5 year olds in a welcoming, organised, caring and stimulating environment. A vital part of the local community for nearly 50 years, we are conveniently located behind Epping North Public School and across from the North Epping Shopping Centre. Our kindergarten is a great place for both you and your children to make local friends and feel part of a community.
The kindergarten caters for children 3-5 years of age and is licensed for 55 children per day catering for 3 classes in operation in any one day.
We operate on a four term basis coinciding with normal NSW school terms.
The groups presently offered in the kindergarten are either 2 or 3 day groups:
- 3 day group-Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
- 3 day group-Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
The children in 3-day classes attend from 9am – 3pm on their day of attendance.
- 2 day group-Monday, Tuesday
- 2 day group-Wednesday, Thursday
- 2 day group-Thursday, Friday
The 2-day classes operate from 8am – 3.30pm.
Although the 2-day classes will start at 8am, there is no requirement for the children to arrive at 8am, but they should arrive by 9am. Likewise if the parents prefer to pick up the children at 3pm then they are free to do so.
We extended our hours in our two days classes in 2017 to enable all of our enrolled children to have access to at least 15 hours of preschool each week in the year prior to starting school.
North Epping Kindergarten offers all the benefits of a school like environment (take your own lunch, manage your own school bag, etc), which helps build children’s independence in the comfort and safety of a nurturing community environment. The educators are highly experienced, caring and supportive of all children and attempt to meet everyone’s needs. They take the time to really get to know your children and value them individually.
My children have both enjoyed their experiences at Kindy. I would highly recommend North Epping Kindergarten as a Kindy that offers so much more than a traditional daycare and a richer experience than just a Pre-School!Kathy, mum of two kids
