Welcome to Seabrook Kindergarten
Coronavirus COVID-19 Update
COVID-19 Update: Under Stage 4 restrictions, Seabrook Kindergarten is only permitted to remain open for children whose parents or guardians are permitted workers and for vulnerable children. If you or someone in your home can look after your child, you should continue to do this. It is important to remember the aim of the Stage 4 restrictions is about limiting movement and close contact across the community.
If you are a permitted worker and your child/ren cannot otherwise be cared for during work hours by you or another responsible member of the household, you will require a permitted worker permit or if you are working from home and are unable to supervise your child/ren in the course of your duties and do not have anyone else in your household who can supervise them, you will require an access to child care permit.
If you meet the above requirements and intend to send your child/ren to kinder, please contact Mandy or Anthony at Seabrook Kinder on 9395 3012 to register, so that we can ensure we have appropriate staffing arrangements on-site. For more information and to access the permits, please click here.
The staffing team will continue to provide home learning opportunities for all of the children and engage with families whilst at home during this challenging time. Thinking of all our families – please stay safe.

Our philosophy at Seabrook Kindergarten is to create a safe, secure, natural, sustainable and stimulating indoor and outdoor environment where the well-being of each and every child is of fundamental importance.
We encourage our children to experiment, investigate and explore our kinder and believe that all should be allowed to discover, imagine, create imitate, interact with others and express ideas without inhibitions.
We utilise the Early Years Learning and Development Framework as a base for planning, promoting and assessing learning within the kinder. This enables us to have a clear focus on children’s learning and well-being as well as encouraging close partnerships with the families.
With constantly developing qualified educators who are nurturing and caring. We encourage children to be happy, engaged and enjoy learning and we aim to provide the foundation blocks for a brighter future.
