Vera Lacaze Memorial Kindergarten is a not-for-profit organisation run by a committee of community volunteers. We are affiliated with Lady Gowrie Qld and have been established in Toowoomba for over 55 years. Welcoming children between 3-5 years of age. Children receive an average of 15 hours of kindergarten education per week for 40 weeks. Throughout the program we develop a positive disposition towards learning within children. We aim to develop attributes of life-long and self-motivated learners who are developed in all realms, including emotional, social, physical, intellectual. High-quality play-based learning. Our staff provide a high-quality play-based learning program using the Early Years Learning Framework & Queensland Kindergarten Curriculum guidelines. We provide a tailored approach through our individualised learning framework for each child. We use communication, reflection, observation and collaboration with child, parents and educators within the centre to provide a wholistic approach. Individuality is celebrated, respected & cherished. We are a community of learners, children, educators and families. Through our tailored approach, individualised learning framework and nurturing environment we can help children achieve their personal best. We view every child as being exceptional in their own right. We endeavor to provide a happy, harmonious environment in which a child can grow. The founder of Kindergarten (children's garden) Friedrich Froebel, stressed the respect with which the individuality and ability of each child should be treated (Gutek, G.L. 2001). We provide a protected, nurturing space where these differences are celebrated and where the individual can feel safe and thrive as their true selves, rather than being molded in a pre-determined way.
