Hi, I’m Helen and I’m the Co-ordinator at Boroondara Kindergarten. I’ve worked as an educator here for over 25 years. As well as holding a Bachelor of Education, I have a Graduate Certificate in Orff Music.

Each child has their own learning journey and I feel privileged to share in part of that journey. My own early journey was rich with experiences in music making, movement, exploring my backyard and beyond, building resilience and belief in myself. BK is how we refer to Boroondara Kindergarten. It also signifies ‘be kind’ – to all who cross the threshold – the children, the families, the members of our team, those who work with and alongside the children, families and staff in a range of capacities and those who provide support and service to the work we undertake.

Health and wellbeing

Mental health

Our educators are trained in various programs to support the mental health of your child and are skilled in working with children who have experienced challenges and trauma. We also refer mental health support for families if you find yourself in need of assistance.


Your child will learn about nutrition, looking after their body and the importance of an active lifestyle. We do this by:

Safe environment

As a child safe organisation, our educators undergo regular working with children’s and police checks. We are focussed on delivering learning and development in a safe and supportive environment, so you can trust that your child is in good hands.
