Welcome To Riversdale Kindergarten
Riversdale Kindergarten is set in spacious park like grounds in Taradale, where children have the opportunity to explore and learn in the natural environment. Several large mature trees provide natural shade as well as the opportunity to learn about the natural rhythms of the seasons. We are proud to be an enviro-school. This allows the children to grow vegetables in our gardens, learn about waste reduction, composting and to tend for the worm farm and our pet chickens.
We pride ourselves on creating a safe learning environment where natural curiosity and creativity is encouraged, allowing children to grow and develop harmonious relationships with peers and adults.
Our Favourite 2009 ERO Comment:
'Children negotiate and communicate as they play imaginatively together. Children actively engage in investigation and sustained exploration. Children and their families experience an environment that focuses on learning outcomes for children.'

Meet The Staff:
"Riversdale kindergarten provides a safe, friendly and positive environment for pre-school children. My daughter loves coming here and enjoys all the creative, imaginative and challenging opportunities provided for her. I love watching her social skills and confidence grow.
The teachers are very encouraging and always open and available to talk. We also enjoy the way the children are encouraged to participate in nature based play and time outdoors." (Andrea, parent 2009)See more testimonials
