Play, Learn and Grow

City Stars Kindergarten, part of Caloundra City Private School on the beautiful Sunshine Coast

Welcome to City Stars

Our Mission is to provide an outstanding educational environment that is vibrant, exciting and encourages a child’s sense of curiosity and wonder; a place with an exceptional standard in a nurturing setting with an emphasis on the care and attention of each individual student.

Nurturing Growth

Learning experiences at City Stars Kindergarten are interesting, inviting and challenging. They allow the children to build on existing knowledge and discover new learning, with a particular focus on maximising early literacy and numeracy development.

In Kindergarten we often react to spontaneous learning activities that are relevant to the child, however, we are guided overall by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines. In this way, the whole child is nurtured, and provided with opportunities to develop academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.

What our parents say

It is with great pleasure that I write this Testimonial for City Stars, my husband and I are incredibly impressed with the program on offer. As an Early Childhood Teacher myself, who has taught in many Kindergartens in Canberra, I am still blown away each week with the personalised learning experiences City Stars provide. Zoe is the youngest of four children and is academically more advanced than her sisters were at this age, I credit this to the amazing teachers for their personalised programs and their passion for teaching. We love that City Stars is part of the Caloundra City Private School Community. This allows our children to interact with other year levels and get to see familiar faces. Zoe’s highlight of the day is seeing her sisters throughout the day. Furthermore, the City Star students are able to use the facilities and resources that the school offers like the Library and the Permaculture Garden. Zoe loves feeding the chickens and eating the fresh produce.

City Stars Kindergarten is an ideal place to begin your child’s educational journey. It is a vibrant, activity packed, learning adventure every day. The teaching staff are warm, fun and foster friendship and caring amongst the City Stars students. We think the Kindergarten provides a fantastic transition into “big school” and it’s wonderful to find a place that the children love too.

Fleur and Craig Norton

Two of our four children have been fortunate enough to have attended City Stars Kindergarten at Caloundra City Private School. We feel that City Stars has given them the opportunity to experience the fun of learning at an early age. Our son loves to go to school and wakes up each morning asking us if he is going to City Stars today! The teachers let each child know that they are valued and important and the atmosphere in the classroom is one of warmth and acceptance. As parents whose children have attended Caloundra City Private School for the last eleven years we have been most impressed by the quality of the teaching staff. They are all very supportive and encouraging and our family really appreciates their efforts.

City Stars has been amazing for our little girl. We cannot thank the staff enough for embracing her and making the big school transition such a wonderful experience.
