St Aidan's Anglican Girls School Kindergarten

St Aidan's is a Prep to Year 12 Anglican day school for girls, with a co-educational Kindergarten. Located in Corinda, with a population of approximately 800 students, reflecting our belief that students experience many benefits in a smaller school.



Educators at St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School believe learning is a lifelong journey and that early childhood is the foundation on which this exciting and important quest begins. St Aidan's Kindergarten acknowledges that parents are a child's first and most important teacher and that collaborative relationships between educators and families are essential for engaging in active learning. As a learning community, we promote an education pedagogy that supports children to learn through play and conversation. We also acknowledge that each young child develops at a different rate and with a different set of dispositions. As such, young children should have a learning environment that is responsive to their individual needs. Due to the fact that children bring with them a pre-existing set of skills, abilities and knowledge bank, what they can do rather than cannot is the starting point in their learning. This process of value adding, through the key concepts of play and conversation, is the fundamental function of Kindergarten at St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School.


The shared vision of the early childhood educators at St Aidan's is to provide the highest quality kindergarten program within a safe, secure and supportive Christian environment. The kindergarten program is based on a pursuit of excellence in early childhood education. St Aidan's aims to develop independence, resilience and a sense of self-identity through the carefully crafted combination of independent play opportunities, teachable moments and specialist les​sons.

St Aidan's has an on-going commitment to uphold the 'rights of the child', enabling young children to express their views and opinions freely in a supported environment (UN, 1990) while engaging each young child in meaningful experiences that promote their desire for learning. The kindergarten program at St Aidan's acknowledges that young children are confident, involved, enthusiastic learners who develop a range of skills and processes through a diverse range of learning environments. The staff strive to develop an environment of mutual respect between families, children and school where all learn and grow in an environment of care, empathy and respect. It is the aim of St Aidan's Kindergarten to provide a setting where families and young children are capable of contributing to their learning experiences and creating meaningful relationships.

Ages: Kindergarten programs in receipt of funds from the Queensland Kindergarten Funding Scheme must ensure they maximise enrolments of eligible-age children.

Important information about our Service: St Aidanís Outside School Hours Care is approved to provide education and care primarily to children over preschool age. At least 60% of children being provided education and care at the service must be over preschool age.

This condition above is applied to before school, after school and vacation care programs. As a result, St Aidan's OSHC is unable to provide before school care to kindergarten students due to the low number of school aged students enrolled. A limited number of places for kindergarten students at after school care and vacation care are available therefore we recommend contacting the OSHC Coordinator, Palu Ingram, to discuss availability by emailing

Government Rebates: St Aidanís OSHC is an approved CCB (Child Care Benefit) and CCR (Child Care Rebate) child care/OSHC centre. To be eligible for the CCB or the CCR, families must register with the Family Assistance Office (FAO) to receive a parent and child registration number (CRN). These numbers must be supplied to the Service in order to receive your CCB or CCR. To test your eligibility for CCB and CCR contact the Family Assistance office on 13 61 50. It is your responsibility to provide St Aidan's OSHC with the relevant Customer Reference Numbers (CRNs) for the student attending and the linked parent.

Kindergarten Statement of Fees

St Aidanís was established in 1929 by the Sisters of the Society of the Sacred Advent Ė an order of Anglican sisters committed to serving God through nurturing and serving young women.

On day one, Sister Elisabeth was Sister-in-Charge at St Margaretís, and Mrs Christine Hartland was Headmistress at St Aidanís. They both upheld the view that education for girls needed to equip them for life. To this day, the schoolís mission remains the same: to encourage confidence and success in students through pursuit of their academic, sporting, cultural and community pursuits within a caring environment.
