Chapel Hill Community Kindergarten runs a 3 year old pre-kindy program on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon from 3.15pm until 4.45pm. This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce your child gently to the wonderful world of kindy. By the time they start 4 year old kindy they are off and running. This program is run by a fully qualified early childhood teacher and assistant and if you complete 4 terms of pre-kindy your child will be guaranteed a place in the 4 year old kindy program the following year. Any queries please contact the kindy office, our office manager Cheryl is there on a Tuesday and Thursday between 9.30am and 2.30pm and will happily answer any questions or organise a suitable time for you to come and view our beautiful kindy.
The annual Kindy Family Fun Day will be held on saturday 17th May 2014 between 9:30am and 1pm. This is a fantastic fun day for both adults and children alike.

We will be asking for volunteers to help with the event on the day, as well as to bake items for the sweet stall and donate lucky dip prizes.

It was another fantastic day at our beautiful kindy, made even more beautiful by the display of many amazing artworks by all of the children from each kindy group. Not only did we get to enjoy the fruit of the children's artistic abilities, the day was complemented by delicious coffee by The Rich Pour, treats from the cake stall, as well as the interactive entertainment by Mal Wood and his Jazz Men. The children loved dancing and joining in with the music and it added to the atmosphere of the wonderful day. Thank you to our excellent teachers and all involved in making the 2013 Art Show a success!

Our Renovations Grand Opening & Family Fun Day was a resounding success! Many families, teaching staff and committee members came along as Dr Bruce Flegg opened the renovations with 3 of our kindy children, Jane Prentice MP & Councillor Julian Simmonds also came along and showed their support. Thank you to all those parents and grandparents who volunteered on the day or made sweets for the sweet stall. Our group reps and fundraisers did a fabulous job and we have raised in excess of $1000. It was a fantastic show of support and what being part of a community kindy is all about!
Thank you to Michelle Mcleod for sponsoring the Magician and yellow group Grandad Neville Matthews Etax Local Accountant for sponsoring the sausage sizzle and drink. Check out all our recent sponsors from the community on our sponsors page.
Saturday 18 May from 10am - 1pm
Everyone is welcome to come and join in on the excitement of our major renovations grand opening and enjoy the fun of the carnival! Dr Bruce Flegg will be representing the minister and opening our renovations with some of our kindy children. There will be some short speeches starting promptly at 10.10am and then the family fun day will get under way.
The renovations have been going for a few weeks now and the weather hasn't exactly been kindy to us! Listonia Landscaping & MG Larder Builders & Landscapers are doing a wonderful job. I think everyone agrees what has been done so far is pretty impressive! This week we hope to see the roof structure completed, the sandpit filled with sand and the extended outside area tiled. In the next week or so they will then move on to construction zone 2 (extends from the outside toilets to the bottom shed). They are working hard to make up time lost due to bad weather and we are still hopeful of completion by the beginning of term 2.
UPDATE 17 March: This coming week Zone 1 will be completed and handed over - This is the main part of our external renovations and WOW does it look impressive, take a look at the photos below.
UPDATE: 19 March - This morning our blue group children arrived to be wowed by our beautiful new sandpit, extended & covered outside area. We are all amazed at what our fantastic Landscapers have achieved for us, check out the photos below.
Over the Christmas holidays the teachers and committee have still been working hard clearing out the kindy so we can start our internal renovations. A big thank you to Tim Alexander Carpentry and his team who have pulled out all the stops to get it finished on time for the start of term 1 2013.
This has been proudly funded and supported by the Queensland and Commonwealth Governments. The work includes reconfiguring the staff toilet to make a bigger storage area. Installing new lockers and storage above, installing custom built storage in home corner and a custom built music cupboard. Tim will also be removing the old shed from under the kindy, putting in a concrete slab and a built in storage area later in the year.
Our playground redevelopment is coming along, we are waiting for Brisbane City Council to give us the go ahead to remove a tree and for building approval for the deck extension and shade structures.
We will keep you updated …..
