New Kinders Give Whittlesea Parents More Options for Early Education
21 February 2022
With three newly opened kindergartens now open across the City of Whittlesea, parents and carers now have more choice than ever when it comes to early childhood education options for their little ones.
Kirrip Kindergarten in Wollert, located just a 5-minute drive from Riverhills, as well as McLeans Road Kindergarten in Bundoora, and Eucalyptus Parade Kindergarten in Donnybrook have all opened their doors for Term 1 2022, welcoming over 240 budding learners to the newly opened centres.
Council’s chair administrator Lydia Wilson said that the newest additions to the kindergarten network provide engaging three and four year old programs that create a foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
“As we welcome a growing number of families to the City of Whittlesea each year, council is focused on providing local facilities and programs that help children strengthen their physical, social and emotional wellbeing,” Ms Wilson said.
“We’re delighted to provide safe and inclusive spaces for children to build their confidence and gain the skills they need for a smooth transition to primary school.”
Applications are now open for three-year-old kindergarten in 2023 and four-year-old kindergarten in 2024. Places are also still available for three-and 4-year-old kindergarten in 2022.
If you’re interested in learning more about your local kindergartens, families are invited to explore Whittlesea’s options at the annual Kindergarten Open Night on February 24, from 5.30-7.30pm.
