Located next to Ivanhoe Train Station, our kindergarten has plenty of parking and a bus stop directly out the front.

Your child will engage in hands-on, nature-based activities and collaborative play to foster their strengths, interests and social connections.

With a train line close to our kinder, the children enjoy train spotting.

Early Childhood Teacher


Hi, I’m Nicole and I’m the Early Childhood Teacher at Ivanhoe Uniting Kindergarten. I’ve worked in early learning for over 12 years and hold a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) and a Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Play.

I believe play-based learning in their early years supports children to develop their skills and abilities as they grow. I am inspired by the Australian Bush Kindergarten approach and nature-based learning. I believe children thrive in spaces where they are encouraged to have a sense of agency with the learning environment.

At Ivanhoe Kinder, your child will engage in an intentionally designed early learning environment that stimulates growth though play based learning and education.

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 offer mental health support for families if you find yourself in need of assistance. 


We have a strong focus on healthy eating and nutrition. Our meals are prepared on site and are full of nutrition and flavour. Your child will help grow the food that we cook in our kitchen. We cook this food using our recycled water. We work with families from a range of cultural backgrounds to ensure cultural foods meet food standard requirements. We also offer progressive snack and lunch time to empower children to ask for what they want and when.

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.

Policies and downloads


For most of us, the COVID-19 pandemic was anything but normal. However, for the children born during its wake, a life of lockdown is all they have ever known.
From 10 July 2023, Child Care Subsidy (CCS) is changing. Most families using child care will get more subsidy.
Congratulations to our Early Learning educators who were finalists in this year’s Victorian Early Years Awards.
If you have more than one child aged 5 or under in care, you may soon get a higher Child Care Subsidy …
