play-based development


Mermaid Waters Community Kindergarten is a not-for-profit, community-run kindergarten located in the central Gold Coast suburb of Mermaid Waters. Our program serves pre-prep children aged 3.5 to 5 years.

Since 1977, our kindergarten has been using play-based learning to help children connect with and better understand the natural and cultural world in which they live. As a community kindergarten, curriculum is planned and implemented in partnership with educators, children, and families.

Tours of our classroom and gardens are available to interested families, or watch our video tour here.
Please contact us for an
appointment or to enrol now.
