Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Rockbank Murray Road Kindergarten

Co-located with the Thornhill Park Children’s and Community Centre and the Rockbank Murray Road Primary School our vibrant, state of the art kindergarten provides inclusive, high-quality, play-based preschool programs for three and four year old children in Thornhill Park and surrounds.

We acknowledge that each child’s journey is different and therefore aim to provide children with diverse learning opportunities and environments that support, enhance and challenge them to thrive. Our play-based programs and curriculum are developed in-line with the National Quality Framework and the Victorian Early Years Learning Framework principles.

Our close relationship with Rockbank Murray Road Primary School will provide opportunities for seamless transitions to primary school. With shared resources, co-curriculum planning and regular shared activities across the site, the kindergarten will provide all children with access to rich social experiences.

Sparkways has an unequivocal commitment to the health and well-being of all children. All our educators are highly qualified and trained in all matters of child safety and hold the rights of the child at the heart of the work they do. Most importantly, we believe children have a right to be safe, recognised, respected and heard.

Our relationship with you

We welcome all members of the community, and recognise that parents are the first and most important teachers in the lives of their children. Working in partnership with families and community and getting to know about children’s family histories, cultures, values, celebrations and rituals are key to the development of our early learning programs.

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 and we are thrilled to be a part of this initiative.

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.
