Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Roycroft Kindergarten

Roycroft Kindergarten has been operating since 1985 and we have qualified and dedicated staff members. Roycroft Kindergarten’s philosophy is to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment to encourage children to develop to their full potential.

We recognise each child’s uniqueness and potential as they enjoy their childhood. All children are treated equally regardless of race, religion, gender or ability. Children learn through play. Learning opportunities are designed to assist in the development of children’s skills and abilities, ensuring individual needs are met. Our program focuses on children’s physical, social, emotional, intellectual and language development.

We believe that children need to grow and develop in a loving, caring, stimulating and safe environment. Children will enjoy an environment that includes all curriculum areas, catering for their individual strengths and needs. The environment is friendly, supportive, welcoming, fun and inviting. A wide variety of age appropriate activities will be available at the children’s level, including both planned and spontaneous activities to challenge the children’s developing abilities. Teachers will promote teamwork and open communication between staff. They will also build trusting relationships with parents using daily communication and an open door policy. Positive child guidance will be used at all times.

Our small community kindergarten caters for 22 children in our 4 year old group with 2 qualified and experienced Educators. We offer a play and interest based program, the program caters for each child as an individual. We welcome family involvement and look forward to sharing the environment. We have a large outdoor play space that enables children to run, play, and learn in a natural environment.

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.

Every child is an individual and will meet milestones at different times. As such children do not have to be toilet trained to attend kindergarten.

As your child begins to show an interest in the toilet, please talk with the educators in our kindergarten. We will work with you and assist in any way we can. When you begin toilet training, pack many changes of clothes as we may have accidents along the way.

As a sun-safe organisation we provide child-friendly sunscreen, however if your child has sensitive skin please feel free to provide your preferred brand.
