East Burwood

Our Centre

We’re proud to have been providing high-quality Kindergarten for over 50 years!

We provide play-based 3 and 4 year old kindergarten programs, where the children can explore and follow their own interests. Creative activities are open-ended, allowing the children to work at their own level.

We value language and music experiences, and playing outdoors. Our curriculum includes a Chinese Language program with a qualified Mandarin-speaking teacher. The children learn to share, to take turns, to consider other people, and to take care of the environment. We welcome parent involvement and work in partnership with you to create the right learning environment your child.
