Red Hill Kindergarten provides children with a high quality early education through a play based curriculum within excellent facilities.


The Physical Environment At Red Hill Kindergarten

We offer a play based program in recognition of the importance of play in children’s lives. Our core educational goal relates to children following their own interests and building on their interest areas. 

The children’s interests and knowledge bases make up the content of our programs. The teacher’s intentionality directly relates to the scaffolding of the principles and practices outlined in the curriculum documents and frameworks. Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

The Curriculum And Intentional Teaching

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is the national curriculum, supported by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG).

The vision and title of The Early Years Learning Framework: BelongingBeing Becoming resonates with early childhood practitioners because it describes what they see as their core business: Creating spaces in which young children can feel attached, feel appreciated for what they are right now and feel supported in what they might become as effective citizens in a complex future world.

Setting Up For Intentional Teaching

At Red Hill Kindergarten, an environment is created in which:

  • there is joint ownership of space and reciprocal decision-making

  • children can access materials, investigate how things work and explore puzzling questions

  • relationships of mutual respect and trust are established

  • children and adults collaborate to solve problems

  • children’s ideas and opinions count and we can find a solution that suits everyone

  • adults contribute knowledge from their own experience to enrich, challenge and extend children’s learning.

Intentional Teaching

Intentional teachers act with specific learning goals in mind, considering your children’s development in social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative domains and for learning in the academic domains of literacy, maths and science.

Adults intentionally play roles in guiding children’s experiences and children have significant and active roles in planning and organising learning experiences.
