Located in Brisbane's northern suburb of Everton Park, Next Steps Kindy is a ministry of Northside Christian College and Nexus Church

Christian Kindy

Christian values are the basis of our culture at Next Steps Kindy. We recognise that each child is created by God and individually valuable. Each staff member has their own personal Christian faith. We care for and educate children in a safe, secure and engaging environment from a Christian world-view. 

Our play-based educational program revolves around developing values of Christian character, modelling gratitude, joy, self-control, generosity, courage, gratitude and humility as children interact with their teachers and peers. As part of our program, we have the children’s pastor from Nexus Church visit us for devotions regularly throughout the year.

Our goal is to prepare children for the best start at school and educate them to discover their God-given potential.

Transitioning to school

Effective transition programs are based on strong relationships and communication between the child, their family, Kindy, the school and the community. 

At Next Steps we are blessed to be part of the Northside Christian College campus. Throughout the year we visit facilities like the Library and Oval and participate in events with the Junior School such as Under 8’s day and Sports day

Near the end of the Kindy year, the children enjoy visits to Junior school chapel and the Prep classrooms to experience Prep and meet some of the teachers. This is a wonderful opportunity to build a support network and provide a positive experience for starting school.
