About Mosman Kinderland
At Mosman Kinderland we have both play based learning and also formal group times where children are engaged with story-telling, activities, experiments and experiences about different interests and learning topics.
Children are encouraged to play and learn with nature. We grow a vegetable garden and take care of pet rabbits with the children.
We do hands on experiences and experiments with the children and they are encouraged to learn independence skills and participate as part of the group.
We have performers visit the centre to entertain and teach the children about animals, science, hygiene and health magicians, emergency services, indigenous performers, music and musical instrument shows and workshops, school excursions and more. The children and centre sponsor a child with the support of the families. We exchange letters and learn about his way of life.
We look forward to meeting with you and your child and making you part of our Kinderland family. Don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or email for enquiries and a waiting list.
