A Christian Childcare Centre supporting families.
Coast Kindy is a welcoming and friendly Christian Early Childhood Centre, which has been serving our local community since 1984. It’s a special place where children are loved, have fun, explore and learn in a safe environment, and families are supported as we journey through the early childhood years together.
Run by our Coast Kindy, Kin da Groove is a community music and movement programme which runs on Friday mornings for babies to 5 year olds at 9.30am in an indoor space next to the Kindy.
