Mernda Villages Kindergarten

At Mernda Villages Kindergarten we are committed to providing a welcoming, positive and inclusive environment for all children and families. We value each child as individual and support them to feel safe and secure with a strong sense of belonging. We understand the vital contribution of play to early childhood development and the importance of interest-based learning. Children’s interests and strengths are recognised and their thinking extended through our play based ‘hands on’ learning program, where educators teach intentionally to develop children’s skills, understandings and positive attitudes for learning. We respect the uniqueness of our families, acknowledge them as their child’s first teacher and foster supportive, collaborative relationships. We strive for positive learning outcomes for all children and promote a sense of connection to the Kinder and community.

Mernda Villages experienced educators are highly committed to working together as a team and ensuring the best outcomes for each child, therefore providing a caring, happy positive atmosphere for all.

Mernda Villages Kindergarten is committed to Child Safe Practices and ensuring children are safe at all times.

Our program at Mernda Villages Kindergarten follows The Early Years Learning Framework. The curriculum includes Literacy and Numeracy, Music, Science, Outdoor play, Caring about the Natural Environment, Drama, Creative Arts ,Physical skills and Learning about other cultures. This is provided through a play based curriculum.

Mernda Villages Kindergarten has strong links with the City of Whittlesea, the local schools, CFA, Local Early Intervention Service, Maternal and Child Health and other organisations to support each child as part of their community.
