Preparing your child for their learning journey
The Peace Kindy program caters for, and builds upon children’s interests and explorations, developing a curious love of learning for the years to come.
The Kindy’s links to the College and its community ensure a natural progression into the Prep year to come, with Peace Kindy kids making regular visits to the Peace Lutheran College Resource Centre and Library.
The College's Preparing My Child for Prep booklet is full of great ideas to get your little one ready for their first year of school.

Each classroom has an Early Childhood Teacher and Educator who is guided by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and the Early Years Learning Framework. Peace Kindy is centrally managed by Queensland Lutheran Early Childhood Services (QLECS).
The kindy year commences annually in late January and is offered throughout school terms. During vacation care periods qualified staff continue the kindergarten routine and plan experiences that stimulate and engage the children.
Peace Kindy operates 48 weeks of the year and closes for four weeks over the Christmas period. Kindergarten eligible children who turn four years of age prior to 30 June are given priority.
How to apply
Positions in the Kindy are limited and are in high demand. Apply by completing and submiting a Wait List Application for your child’s approved year (that is, the year your child will turn 4 years of age by the end of June).
