Kindy Commences

Bracken Ridge Kindergarten operates in line with the QLD school calendar. In 2025, your child's first day begins on Tuesday 28th of January and continues for a 10 week term. You will be given an outline of what you need to bring for each kindy week prior to commencement. This will help set the pattern for each drop off and create stability and responsibility that will span well into your child's primary years!
