Quality kindergartens near where you live or work

Laurel Street Kindergarten

We are a unique service in the community as we offer both quality Child Care as well as independent Kindergarten programs.

Whittlesea Children’s Centre promotes each child’s sense of “Belonging, Being, and Becoming”.
Our centre creates a welcoming environment for families in our semi-rural township and surrounds; acknowledging the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of this land.
We strive to enrich lives and identities of children and families participating in the setting; value and respect the diversity of each family.
We are a non for profit organisation- that offer’s both childcare and sessional kindergarten programs.

Partnerships
We value that our families are the most important people in their children’s lives. We work in partnership with families and our local community to foster ongoing communication to build a sense of respect.
Through these partnerships we support and advocate for families within our centre.  They are incorporated into educational programs; and support us to access a wide variety of health, education and learning experiences.

Educational programs

Our play based program engages the Early Years Learning Framework, which fosters individualised learning. We recognise that all children are individual and we provide programs that cater for different learning capacities and learning styles and invite children and families to contribute to ideas, interests and questions.
Educators engage spontaneous, open-ended, play based and natural opportunities ensuring responsiveness to all children.

Stimulating aesthetic environments are created indoors and outdoors which reflect on intentional teaching and children’s interest, individual development and strength.
Through daily practices we encourage children to understand the issues of recycle and conservation to foster an appreciation of the natural environment and the world in which they live.
Our centre recognises and supports our valued educators for their knowledge, professionalism and life experiences. Educator’s work collaboratively engaging in ongoing reflective practice, professional development and work towards the National Quality Standards.

Happy and involved children, families and educators are an essential indicator of a high quality educational program.
