It's time to start THE adventure

Dalby Beck Street Kindergarten offers two groups. Both groups attend two days per week during the Queensland school term from 8:15 am to 3:45 pm.  Bilbies attend on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Possums attend on Thursdays and Fridays.

what next

In term three the year before attendance, an enrolment offer is sent to families on the waiting list in consecutive order of when the child was placed on the list. You can then accept or decline the offer.

Next will be transition days where you and your child can attend kindy for two hours once a week for the first four weeks of term four. This is a great way for your child to become familiar with the kindy and their educators.

We also invite families to attend our Orientation Day in January, usually held in the week before Kindy starts from 9 am to 10:30 am.  This allows the children to refamilarise themselves with the kindy and educators after the holidays to help ease the transition as well as an opportunity for our teachers to provide the most up to date information regarding your child’s transition to kindy.

“Kindy” – Children turning four (4) by 30 June in the year of attendance.


We are thrilled with the news that the Queensland Government is introducing free kindergarten starting in 2024.

Kindy will be free for eligible-aged children, who attend a government approved program offering free kindy, from 1 January 2024. A free kindy program is for 15 hours a week or 600 hours a year, taught by a qualified early childhood teacher.

The introduction of free kindy in Queensland is a significant step and recognises the importance of early childhood education and its positive impact on a child’s overall development.

By removing the financial barrier, every child will have the opportunity to attend kindy and benefit from the enriching experiences it offers.

The introduction of free kindy means that you will have access to high-quality early education for your child without the burden of extra cost.

This opportunity allows you to invest in your child’s future and provide them with the best possible start in their educational journey.

We understand that choosing the right kindergarten provider for your child is an important decision. With the introduction of free kindy, we encourage you to visit your service, ask questions, and discuss your child’s specific needs and interests.

Free kindy in Queensland is a significant milestone that will positively impact families and children. We encourage all parents to take advantage of this opportunity and provide your child with a strong foundation for future success.

2024, a year that will bring newfound educational possibilities for our little ones.
