At Pandnaus Kindergarten we have created a place where children can enjoy a wide range of life experiences. From structured and unstructured play to observing the daily routines of the fish, birds and animals around the centre. They will also be involved in the daily routines of cooking, gardening, cleaning and tidying and going for walks.
Our aim is to provide a range of experiences which will give the children skills for life in a safe and friendly environment; and enjoy themselves. Parents are always welcome to linger for a while when dropping off or picking up their children. While being tempted to spend the day with the children they can't stay and must go to work each day.

Frequently Asked Questions
As a core to our centre we follow the the Early years learning Framework. To achieve this we have a wide range of activities drawn from a number of proven philosophies. These activities fall under the following headings;
Do you presently have vacancies?
Yes we have vacancies for full day care. A vacancy can be reserved by paying a $350 fee which if offset against the fees when the child starts. Where possible we match families so if they have part time care they have an ability to swap days with others in their group by direct arrangement with the other family.Are your children in separate age groups?
No, we believe it is good to have mixed age groups for children's interaction. When the children participate in activities of different skill levels then we arrange the groups to recognise this. All the children mix with each other during our daily activities, some time in large and sometimes in small groups.Do you cater for special food requirements?
Yes we do. We use all organic or fresh food in preparation of our meals and snacks. All bread, buscuits and cakes are baken using organic products on site. We also cater for all othe food need including gluten intolerance.Do you accept children younger than 3 years?
Yes we will accept toilet trained children older than 2 years 6 months from start of term or on arrival in Darwin.
