Whittlesea and Nillumbik 

Our kinder is in the Nillumbik Shire, however our kinder community consists of families from both Whittlesea and Nillumbik Shires. All are welcome! 

Class Sizes

We are pleased to offer small class sizes. Our kinder groups are capped at 22 students per group, with a qualified teacher and educator in each room.

3 Year Old Kinder Hours

In 2022, our 3 year old groups provide 2 three hour sessions a week, offering a total of 6 hours. We have no current plans to transition to 15 hours in the immediate future. As a parent-run kinder, decisions such as these are made by our Committee of Management and it’s great incentive to get involved.
