Mildura West
Kindergarten

Our Centre

Our mission at Mildura West Kindergarten is to bring inspiration, creativity and innovation to every child so that they may reach their full potential.

We work together with families to meet the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of children.

We achieve this through

  • Presenting an enriching and challenging program
  • Valuing your child, and their skills
  • Encouraging children to build self-confidence
  • Providing a safe and happy environment in which to learn.

We believe each child and family should feel valued, confident and comfortable within our kindergarten environment.  All involved with the kindergarten are respected as individuals regardless of their ethnic background, gender, ability, beliefs and attitudes.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Mildura West Kindergarten for an enjoyable year of learning!
