Our three year old program operates on Wednesday from 12.30pm to 3.00pm and Friday 8:30am to 11:00am. Enrolment is through Casey Council.

Our four year old sessional kindergarten program enrolment is through Casey Council. We have a variety of timetable options to suit families and a high level of involvement within the school.

The quality of the learning and nurturing received by the children at our ELC is fundamental to their success in later years. Learning is hands on, interactive and investigative to encourage the development of an inquiring mind.  We provide a balance of playbased learning with structured routines so children can make choices and follow their interests while learning to be part of a group. Children then gain skills and confidence to transition seamlessly to school. Children participate in a weekly Music and Physical Education Program within the Kindergarten.
