Greenwood Park
Kindergarten

Our Centre

At Greenwood Park we’re proud to have been providing high-quality Kindergarten for over 70 years!

Our centre is heritage-listed and situated within a natural setting of leafy trees. We provide a warm, caring and stimulating environment in which each child’s individual strengths are valued.

Our curriculum is play-based, as we believe that children learn best through action rather than instruction. Our inviting outdoor area is large and well shaded, providing plenty of space for your child to explore, discover and be creative.

Our committed educators work alongside our diverse community of families. The early years are a special time, where the foundations are laid for children to develop a sense of belonging and a love of learning.

Greenwood Park Kindergarten proudly displays the Kinder Tick to help families feel confident that our program is recognised as a funded kindergarten program and:

  • Is led by qualified staff
  • Children benefit from play-based learning
  • The kindergarten program is funded and approved by the Victorian Government
  • Our program complies with government guidelines and the National Quality Framework

Kinder Programs

We offer free 3 and 4 year old kindergarten, with our programs running 15 hours a week.

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.

Sustainability Focus

We encourage children to develop a sense of responsibility for the environment through modelling sustainable practices, such as compost use, waste avoidance, and the use of natural materials.

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!

Space to
Explore

Our large yard is shady and leafy. There’s plenty of room to play, move and explore. In addition to the many play spaces we also have a veggie garden.

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.
For more details, please ask us for a copy of our Philosophy Statement.

The Y has been delivering Early Learning Programs for over 20 years and is passionate about creating safe, fun, educational environments where children can thrive.
