Welcome to Riverton Kindergarten
The Governing Council and staff welcome you to Riverton Kindergarten. We value and care for all children at our centre and strive to provide a safe and caring learning environment.
Our purpose is to provide every child with the opportunity to develop to their full potential through quality care and teaching.
The Kindergarten encourages a rich and relevant play based curriculum to support the development of the whole child. Children are actively engaged in hands on experiences and activities that are relevant to their lives and builds upon previous knowledge and interests.
The focus is on fostering dispositions for learning such as curiosity and persistence, a positive self-esteem, interpersonal skills such as communication, cooperation, sharing and making friends. Children are encouraged to explore new concepts, skills and problems.

Rural Care provides care from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm, Monday to Friday, for 4 under school age and 3 over school age children per session. The DECD Rural Care Program is an approved service for the purpose of Australian Government Child Care Benefit (CCB) www.familyassist.gov.au
