Bethany Lutheran Kindergarten

The Kindergarten is proudly managed by QLECS (Queensland Lutheran Early Childhood Services) which is a non- profit organisation.

It is co-located on the grounds of Bethany Lutheran Primary School but enrolment at the Kindergarten is separate to enrolment at the school.

Our program at Bethany Lutheran Kindergarten aims to stimulate young minds to think outside the square and foster creativity. We will challenge thinking and doing, and support cooperative learning. We welcome the opportunity to be partners with you and your child at Bethany Kindergarten.

Together we will share the exciting journey as your child learns and grows into the talented and gifted person God created. We want to provide your child with a safe, secure, comfortable and supportive learning environment.
