Wonthaggi White Road

Our Centre

The Wonthaggi White Road Kindergarten offers fun, safe and innovative learning spaces both indoors and outdoors which promote exploration, independence and creativity within the programs. 

Our play based programs are underpinned by the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the National Quality Framework and are successfully delivered by qualified and highly experienced educators.

Our team of educators are truly passionate about the vital role they play in the lives of every child. Our program aims to build on the individual and group interests of the children, providing the foundation for the children’s development in literacy and numeracy skills. 

Throughout the kindergarten year, every child will explore, experiment, discover and gain essential skills that will pave the way for the wonderful journey of life. Through their connection with our community, the children will celebrate diversity, grow in their respect for themselves and others and gain confidence and skills.
