The Kindalin Vision

We aim to provide every child with a stimulating and challenging environment in which to grow and learn.

Our philosophy is built around six core beliefs:

Partnerships

Partnerships

A successful learning environment is created through the formation of positive relationships between educators, children and their families.

Environments

Environments

Providing a positive and nurturing environment for all children, which caters to the whole child, values diversity and views children as active, competent and capable learners.

Active Learning

Active Learning

Children learn through active exploration and interactions with peers, adults and their environment.

Family

Family

Forming partnerships with families supports home practices and encourages parents to take part in curriculum planning and practice. Promoting cultural values and lifestyles of families builds a sense of community, support and understanding.

Community

Community

The centres are involved in the local community, recognising events and inviting others to contribute to our curriculum.

Team Culture

Team Culture

We value a team approach, where educators are respected as individuals and work in a supportive collaborative environment which encourages professional development and reflective practice.

The provision of an open learning environment + exploratory creative programs enhance each child’s individuality and ability to develop to their full potential.
30+ years of excellence

Kindalin was founded 1988 by Alison Wharton and her husband Mark. Now with 8 locations across Sydney, Kindalin is proud to be a family owned company with 30+ years of history in the Hills district and a growing reputation in the Northern Beaches.

We have grown to see students become parents, or even staff. (Two of our Directors were once Kindalin children.) Kindalin is an aboriginal word that means 'happy'. We acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal Australians and non-Aboriginal Australians to the care and education of all children in Australia.
