Come with us to a place where anything is possible.
Where swashbuckling sea captains and puddle-jumping champions play together.
Where spells are cast in the sand and chefs cook seaweed soup for superheroes.
Join Billie, her butterflies and her friends as they discover the amazing place that is…Beach Kindy!
Pre-orders are now open for the Beach Kindy picture book, due for release in October 2020.
The Beach Kindy picture book is a celebration of early childhood and learning through play in nature, best suited to children aged 3-6. The story follows a group of Kindy kids on a fabulous Beach Kindy adventure – their first excursion, to the beach!
The Beach Kindy story was lovingly written by past WGG Mum & local author Dannika Patterson, with illustrations by Brisbane artist Di Spediacci. Beach Kindy will be proudly printed in Brisbane too, making it a 100% locally made book.
Inspired by the magical place that is WGG Kindy and its unique beach Kindy program, this beautiful story is set in Brisbane’s Bayside suburb of Wynnum. Although the story has been inspired by WGG Kindy, its universal themes will hold wider appeal and this is a book that can be enjoyed by all families with young children who love beachy adventures.
This book was created to serve multiple purposes: as a keepsake for past and present families of WGG to treasure, an educational text to prepare future generations of WGG children for the thrill of their first excursion to Beach Kindy (at Pandanus Beach, Wynnum) and also as a beautiful picture book story in itself for any young Aussie family to enjoy together. The publication of the Beach Kindy book coincides with Wynnum General Gordon Kindy’s 70th anniversary, making it extra special.
All proceeds from book sales through WGG Kindy will be reinvested directly back into funding this wonderful, community-run, not-for-profit Kindy.
All pre-ordered books will be signed by both author and illustrator.
