Victorian Approved Kinder Tick

3 & 4 Year Old
Kinder Programs

We offer free high quality 3 and 4 year old programs in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Community
Excursions

Excursions support children to explore and get to know different spaces outside of their immediate world at the centre. We run a variety of excursions and incursions to enhance learning and development.

Space to 
Explore

We have large indoor and outdoor play spaces so there is plenty of room to move and explore. Outside play spaces include a cubby house, fantasy garden, water play area and a big sun-protected sandpit. Our rich environment supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical, technological and creative learning.

Sustainability

We encourage children to play, observe, interact with and respect the natural environment, incorporating sustainable practices. Our large outdoor area is an environmentally conscious space, with a worm farm, dry river bed, sensory plants and a vegetable garden. Our 5,000 litre rainwater tank provides water for flushing our toilets.

Storypark App
Access

Storypark connects our educators with families, providing the ability to share news, service updates, progress and exciting moments from kinder to home!

Safeguarding Children
and Young People

We pride ourselves on our commitment to the safeguarding of children and young people, providing safe and fun environments for children to flourish.

Philosophy

Our kindergarten’s philosophy guides our teaching and approach to early learning. It is informed by the National Quality Framework and underpins all our service’s operations and daily practices.
