The Kindy Has a New Logo

Over the past 12 months the staff, with approval from the parent committee, have looked to create a new logo for the Kindergarten.  We engaged the services of a designer who guided us through the process of creating a symbol that represented the Bulimba Community Kindergarten.  Some of the ideas were:

 

  • We wanted it to be circular to represent ‘community’ and children to be present within that circle as they are at the centre of this community

  • We wanted it to look ‘established’.  The centre has been servicing the Bulimba Community since the 1940’s and whilst we don’t want to be defined as ‘old fashioned’ we don’t want to look ‘new’.

  • We wanted the beautiful outdoor area to be represented. So we decided to incorporate the large flowering Poinciana tree in the logo.

 

After much discussion and assistance from the designer the logo was decided upon and approved by the Kindy in October 2015.  We are looking forward to using it to represent the centre in future correspondence.  We hope you like it as much as we do!

Longer Days Coming to Bulimba Kindy in 2016

 

In 2016 the Kindy will be introducing a Longer Day Kindergarten Program in one of our units.  This program will be in addition to offering our normal Kindy Program that operates over a 5 day fortnight from 8.40am to 2.50pm. 

Children undertaking the longer day program would attend Kindergarten four days a fortnight and would attend Kindergarten between 8am - 4pm in either a Monday, Tuesday group or a Wednesday, Thursday group. 

 

Please note that there is no provision for care outside of these hours.

Playground Opening

In 2012 we were lucky enough to have received two major grants from both the Queensland and Commonweath Governments which have gone towards revamping our outdoor environment.

 

Over the 2012 Christmas break work commenced on replacing climbing structures, artifical and natural grass areas and the construction of an impressive fort for the children to play on and to meet the ongoing developmental needs of our children.

 

The playground was officially opened on Wednesday, 1 May 2013 at 11 am.
