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

Westall Kindergarten is conveniently located in the new Westall Community Hub. We are proud to offer support and education for children aged 3-5 years in our 3-year-old and 4-year-old Kindergarten programs. Being located in the Hub, we have strong connections with Westall Primary School, and all of the services operating from the Hub, including a well-resourced library, supported playgroups, maternal and child health services and more. With our strong focus on community, Westall Kindergarten provides a nurturing environment rich with learning opportunities for young children to grow and learn.

While at Westall Kindergarten, we intend for everyone entering our doors to experience a warm, respectful, and fun environment. The teachers at Westall Kindergarten share a wealth of knowledge and are focused on constant improvement, to make our Kinder the best it can be.

Westall Kindergarten offers new, clean, safe and inviting play spaces for children to learn and grow. We understand that each child comes to us with different backgrounds, languages, cultures and experiences, and break down the stereotypical role of the teacher by responding to each child’s individual needs and focusing on growing each child’s strengths. This is based on respect, and taking time to learn, understand and include our very multicultural community.

Alongside incorporating many cultures into our programs, we place a priority on teaching about Australian culture and customs through learning about our Indigenous Australian history, and current practices. We are proud to take care of the environment in and around Westall, and respect the Boon Wurrung Peoples as the Traditional Custodians of this land. We cherish sharing this with our children and families, and encourage everyone who is a part of our community to share in the responsibilities of caring for our world.

Above all, Westall Kindergarten believes that each child is rich with learning possibilities. We are excited to share our knowledge with everyone who walks through the doors, to ensure that each child or adult comes away from Westall feeling welcomed, happy, and a part of our special community.

Westall Kindergarten opened in the Community Hub in 2018, with new, clean and inviting facilities. At Westall, we offer two bright and accessible rooms full of play-based learning opportunities. Within our indoor environment, you will find spacious rooms catering for children’s overall development, including areas of quiet and rest, dramatic play, sensory experiences, literacy and numeracy areas and physical development. Our outdoor yard is spacious and includes a large sandpit, water pump and creek, swings, climbing equipment and a beautiful garden.

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.
