Somerton Park Kindergarten is a full time centre operated by the Department of Education & Children's Services (DECD).

The centre is situated approximately 12 kilometres south west of the city of Adelaide in the attractive seaside suburb of Somerton Park, South Australia.

In a well shaded, natural environment we endeavour to provide a safe, caring, stimulating, high quality learning environment which develops physical, emotional, social and intellectual skills through a play based curriculum.

We work in partnership with our families to meet the needs of each child and we embrace the principles of sustainability to empower our community.
