Mirboo North

Our Centre

Mirboo North Kindergarten is a centrally located kindergarten in the very community-oriented town of Mirboo North.  We work closely with local schools, day care, library and maternal health. Our extensive and captivating outdoors area features a bike track. large established trees and our famous Pirate Ship.

With a focus on sustainability, we are on a path of learning about the responsible management of our environment. Our facilities provide space to play, explore and learn about the world and share these experiences with friends and family.

Our Kindergarten supports and encourages family participation in the program and events. We actively access the skills and interests of families and community members for the program – such as soap making, music and yoga.

Play is the foundation for all of our learning and is planned into our program based on input from the children, observations, current events, and teachers’ learning objectives. We design activities to support and extend development across all areas. Many skills and disciplines are incorporated into experiences to support all children’s learning and interests.

We have a team of highly dedicated and trained staff who have developed a program and planning style unique to their creative and involved natures. Staff highly value education and the concept of learning through play and exploration.

Mirboo North Kindergarten actively supports and is supported by local businesses and families, and participates in local events.

  • 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
