Kalkarindji Children’s Service

Our service in Kalkarindji is one of our most remote, situated 780 kilometres from Darwin in the Northern Territory.

The town became famous for the Wave Hill Walk-off in 1966. The strike by 200 Indigenous station workers was a landmark event that paved the way for equal wages for Aboriginal workers and land rights.

Kalkarindji is a close-knit community, surrounded by beautiful countryside, the Gregory National Park and the Victoria River.

One Tree’s Kalkarindji Children’s Service is ideally located on the school grounds, perfectly situated for early learning.  It serves young children from Kalkarindji as well as neighbouring Daguragu Community.

Our approach

Our service is Reggio Emilia inspired which means our curriculum is child centred, where activities evolve from a child’s interests and experiences.  The self-guided curriculum means they express themselves in different ways as they develop their personality. Children are viewed as active, capable and valuable members of the community.

We promote sustainable practices, including recycling materials so we can reduce our impact on the earth’s natural resources.

We work with the local community and encourage our children to learn words from the local language. Educators understand both Gurindji and English. Children learn Gurindji with the local team members and interact in English with the non-Aboriginal staff. It means we have a bi-lingual environment which promotes confidence and learning among children.

Our services

We are a 25 place service offering, baby, toddler and kindy spaces.
