Early Learning

Early learning in Deer Park.

Located a short walk from Station Waters Reserve and Kororoit Creek in Deer Park, our kindergarten has educated and cared for local children since 1968.

Our educators are passionate about working with your child to build on their strengths and interests, while forming social connections with their peers.

We encourage your child to follow their curiosity, explore and discover the world around them through hands-on, nature-based activities. 

We plan our activities with your child’s interests and abilities in mind, so they engage with the program and develop a love of learning.

Our educators offer an inclusive environment and can support children who live with physical and intellectual disabilities.

Languages

We are part of the Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) Early Childhood Language Program. Our kindergarten offers a Mandarin Language Program. Mandarin is incorporated into everyday learning experiences to give children meaningful opportunities to use the language themselves. Children learn this language through play, art, music, singing, dancing, and stories. A qualified Mandarin teacher delivers the language program in partnership with the other staff at the kinder. Learning in languages other than English helps children to improve their overall literacy and understanding of how language in general works. There are many benefits to children learning in another language at a young age, including:

Our educators are trained to use some key word signing. We can also have communication translated and interpreted for families who speak languages other than English.
