Queen's Kindergarten

Queen's Kindergarten sits wonderfully within the Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate Early Years Department, which strives to provide an enabling, positive environment. Within our specialist Kindergarten area there are three rooms separating the children by age and mobility. The free-flow arrangement means all children are familiar with all staff and rooms but that they have a specific area tailored to their needs.
