Studley Park
Kindergarten

Our Centre

​We are a well-established centre and are proud to have been providing high-quality Kindergarten for over 70 years!

Opened in 1947 and set in beautiful bushland, Studley Park Kindergarten (SPK) is a wonderful, small, community-based kindergarten with 45 families per annum.  With dedicated educators, we run a high-quality preschool program for 3 and 4 year olds, and their families. We value providing a warm and welcoming environment that assists children to feel safe and secure.

We believe children are active learners, they are naturally curious and gain confidence as they explore. Therefore, our program focuses on the individual interests and strengths of each child, whilst ensuring they meet their developmental goals.

Studley 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
