Learn By Playing
Our curriculums are designed to give children and their families agency in their education. We believe childhood is a time for being here and now and not solely about preparation for the future, our educators will include children’s perspectives in teaching and creating our programs to enrich children’s learning, balancing child and educator-initiated experiences. Each child has unique interests and strengths and will develop at their own rate.
Connection To Community
At the heart of everything we do is a connection to community and a desire to serve. We want our children to feel a connection to their community through nature-based play and our partnership with our neighbours, Braemar Village
From My Family To You
I have been in the Early Education Sector for over 20 years; starting my career shortly after completing my studies. During the course of my career I have had 3 children of my own, and have also lectured at both University and TAFE. I Have been part of the Birra-Li family for 17 years
My favourite part of the day is engaging with the children and families at Birra-Li”

Three & Four Year Old Kindy
Birra Li offers a full 3 & 4 year-old kindy program run by fully qualified and experienced early childhood educators. Our nature based program is designed to grow a child’s imagination and inspire a life-long love of learning.
Our team leaders are degree educated in Early Childhood Education. This allows us to offer a full kindergarten program.
Play Based Learning
Play is serious business for little minds. Play helps children absorb big concepts like language and mathematics as well as express their creativity.
Education In Nature
Being connected to the outdoors not only helps children build strength and resilience, but helps foster a strong connection and empathy for natural systems.
The kindy children learn about being part of a community by signing, playing and crafting with the ‘grandma’s and grandpa’s’ through regular visits to Braemar Village.
By developing our kindy kids emotional vocabulary and giving them a sense of personal agency, we help our kids become more confident and resilient.
