We have already received a lot of interest about places in our expanded 2023 program. Please make sure you register with Glen Eira council for your child to attend either 3 year old or 4 year old kinder next year. Glen Eira council will start offering places to registered children as early as mid-June. Don't miss out!
Our 3-4 year old and 4-5 year old play based programs offer a nurturing, dynamic and creative environment, indoors and out. We currently have very limited places in our 4 year old programs for 2022.
