Silkstone kindy gets kick-along

A SILKSTONE kindergarten echoed with the sound of music as children enjoyed new didgeridoos, drums and other educational play equipment.

The C&K Amaroo Community Kindergarten bought more then $31,000 worth of computer gear, toys and climbing equipment after receiving funding from Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Kindergarten director Katlyn Lennon said the children were excited about the equipment.

Ms Lennon said they had enjoyed helping to choose toys.

"When we found out we had been successful in securing the grant we all sat down with the catalogue and had a discussion to choose what toys and equipment the children were most interested in," she said.

Ms Lennon said toys promoting environmental exploration topped the children's wish list, with magnifying glasses and bug-catchers among the most wanted toys.
