We believe that relationships are the key to successful learning. Children experience the world as an environment of relationships that have a direct effect on all areas of their development. We pledge to create positive and reciprocal relationships with children, families and the community. Through these relationships, we will support children so that their voice is heard in all decisions relating to them.
Children thrive in environments that are suited to their interests and developmental stages. We consider our learning environments to be the third teacher and plan welcoming, aesthetically pleasing, culturally relevant spaces that embrace nature and are filled with purposeful materials.
The layout of the environment promotes relationships, communication, collaboration and exploration through play. Materials are thoughtfully added to promote creativity, thinking, experimentation and open-ended play.

The Victorian Government provides funding to support children to access a high quality kindergarten program in the two years before they start school. This helps to ensure all Victorian children get the best start in life.
From 2023, the Victorian Government is making kindergarten programs free for three and four-year-old children – saving you and your family up to $2,500 per year for their program. Free Kinder is a critical component of the Victorian Government’s Best Start, Best Life reform.
What will my child learn at kindergarten?
Our curriculum is play based and draws reference form socio-cultural theories of learning and teaching.
Play requires skilled educators to be intentional in all aspects of their practices and we have built a curriculum around key focus points that reflect the National Early Years Learning Frameworks. Our curriculum is influenced by individual children’s learning styles, interests, families and intentionally planned experiences.
How will I know what my child is learning about?
We communicate with families via a number of ways and actively seek their input into our curriculum. We utilise Storypark to share learning and stay connected, documentation panels in our hallways that showcase learning and opportunities for informal and formal discussions daily.
