Kindergarten

Our Centre

Talbot Kindergarten is a small, friendly centre located in the quiet township of Talbot.

At Talbot Kindergarten we believe that children learn best through play, discovery and being actively involved in their learning.  Our Kindergarten is family-centred and focuses on the connections that children have with their family and community. ​

We create a learning environment that is welcoming, safe, fun and is​ in harmony with the natural environment.

Talbot 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
