Pre-Kinder program

Our three to four-year-old activity based program is an ideal preparation for four-year-old kindergarten.

Time: 12.30pm to 3pm*

*Based on demand

The program aims to enhance the development of social, creative and intellectual skills in children of similar ages.

Benefits of the program:

  • Light snacks will be provided to all children each session.
  • 2.5 hour sessions allow for a more comprehensive development program to be implemented.
  • Bookings on a term basis as per Victorian school terms.
  • Parents are able to leave the Centre and therefore utilise the program for a variety of reasons.
  • You can join mid term and pay for the period remaining.

Pre-Kinder 2020

We are currently seeking expressions of interest for our much loved Pre-Kinder program to return in 2020. 

The session will run for 2.5hrs from 12.30pm – 3.00pm and you can leave the facility. We offer a healthy snack for the children,  so all you are required to do is provide a water bottle and a bag with change of clothes, hat/coat etc.

The program operates in a similar manner to a 3 year old kindergarten program where the children enjoy both free and structured play, group time activities, story time and cooking adventures.

If we have enough interest we may go ahead and open another day.

If you are interested, please fill out the form below. 

Note: you can select more than one.
