About Us

Approved Providers Andrea Juillerat & Nicole James

Cuddle Bugs Kindergarten & Pre-Prep was opened on October 12th, 2009. In 2011 due to the high demand, we expanded from a two room Service to a three room Service. We now have the Dragonfly Pre-Kindergarten room, the Grasshopper Kindergarten room and the Bumble Bee Pre-Prep room. Our goal is to provide the Bundaberg community with the highest quality, yet affordable specialised Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Pre-Prep program.

Our Service is fully air conditioned with tertiary qualified Pre-Prep Teachers. We have a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday program or a Thursday, Friday program. Full time program also available.

Cuddle Bugs Kindergarten & Pre-Prep is fully CCS approved.

Pre-Prep children are also eligible for extra funding from the Qld Government. That means you could be paying very little  for a quality Pre-Prep program! 

Most families are surprised at the minimal cost, once all Government rebates are applied. Please contact adminstration for a quote.
