Enrichment Activities

Freshwater Christian Kindergarten, Where Learning is Serious Fun

This isn’t your typical early education experience. Freshwater Christian Kindy is renowned for excellence, where we foster an environment where children are inspired to explore, take risks, and develop a genuine passion for learning.

Primary School Chapel

Each week our Kindy Kids join the Junior Primary School at Freshwater Church for Chapel where children praise and learn about Jesus, sing the national anthem and watch our peers get awards.

Library Lessons

Children get to experience Library Lessons just like ‘big kids’ in school they visit the librarian every week. Their library lessons support and foster literacy skills.

Swimming Lessons

Living in the tropics we place a high priority on swim safety. We have partnered with the team at C-Me-Swim and in term four students participate in an offsite learn-to-swim program. 

Music Lessons

Students will participate in weekly lessons with our Primary School Music Teacher. Music helps build language, social-emotional, gross motor and literacy skills. Not only is it good for development- it is a lot of fun!

Sports Lessons

The Kindy Kids also join our Junior Primary students to participate in a gross motor program. Ball games, running, jumping and an all-around fun lesson. It’s always a highlight of the week!

Carnivals, Book Week + More!

The Freshwater calendar is always full of fun community events our Kindy Kids enjoy getting involved with. A highlight of the calendar is our Book Week Parade, especially for the teachers too!

What our parents are saying...

“It’s so encouraging when the principal calls it ‘our school’ because it really does feel like home. My kids have been here for years now and we love how kind and compassionate the teachers are towards them. They really do care for their hearts – not just their behaviour. Thankful to be a part of such a loving community!”
