Kindergarten is an important step for all young children and is strongly recommended.
Research shows that kindergarten improves children’s health and wellbeing, helps them to develop strong social skills and encourages a love of learning.
Children who go to a kindergarten program are more independent and confident and are more likely to make a smooth transition to primary school (Prep).
All Warrnambool City Council kindergartens have achieved an exceeding rating in relation to the National Quality standards, a comprehensive set of measures which guide families in identifying quality approved education and child care services across the country.
