Located at the corner Coltman Plaza and Eleanor Drive, the state-of-the-art Lucas Kindergarten is part of the Lucas Community Hub and is easily accessible from suburbs in the growth area of Ballarat West.
Co-located with Maternal and Child Health, the Hub provides convenience for families with visiting services such as early childhood intervention and family services on-site.
At Lucas Kindergarten, children are encouraged to develop personal independence, self-awareness and a feeling of self-worth, and are given opportunities to develop warm, caring, respectful relationships and friendships with other children and adults.
A child’s work is their play and therefore our kindergarten program is play based and child centred. We use current ideas and experiences initiated by the children in their play, and scaffold this learning into further play development. Our routines are guided by the children.
At our kinder, we celebrate the joy of learning and being together as we discover what’s possible!
