3 Year Old Kinder
Our Three-year-old Kindergarten is for children who are 3 years old. They may have turned three the year before, or have a birthday in January, February, March or April of the year they start. Your child can start sessions only after their 3rd birthday.
**For March and April children we suggest waiting to the following year. Children will then be able to attend a full year, and often do better when starting older.
The Three-year-old Kindergarten Program is led by an experienced Teacher with a Bachelor of Early Childhood, supported by experienced educators with Diploma qualifications. The team is also supported by a Director, Educational Leader and the Monash Health Allied Health Team.
We are focused firstly on creating a sense of security, belonging and connectedness for the children, it is the first experience away from home for many. The children are supported to engage in our play-based learning environment, following their interests, their learning extended by the educators.
In 2024, our three-year-old program will consist of three sessions of five hours per week – fifteen hours in total.
- Monday – Wednesday: 9.15am – 2.15pm
There are no fees to pay for families, kindergarten is fully funded by the state government.
