At a public meeting held on Thursday 28th March 1957, at St Judes’ Hall, a Kindergarten Association was formed. Fundraising began with much enthusiasm and excitement, but the process of acquiring land resulted in many disappointments and setbacks.
However, in October 1961, the Trustees signed a lease, that had been drawn up by the Brisbane City Council for 28 Fallon Street, Everton Park.
After receiving bank loan approval and accepting a building quote from L Cogdale of Aspley for 3,457 Pounds, the building began. Finally, in 1962, Everton Park Kindergarten was opened!
