The Balmoral Kinder is situated within the grounds of the Community College, which gives the Kinder children the unique opportunity of being an integrated part of the school community. This includes attending events and celebrations with the school children, as well as utilising College resources such as the Library, Gym and playground.
Transition from 4-year-old Kindergarten to the Foundation year of schooling is enhanced at our setting. Foundation Teachers and the College Principal regularly visit the Kinder throughout the year to get to know the children. During Term 4 Balmoral Kinder children spend a significant amount of time with the Foundation Teacher/s in the Foundation classroom - this allows the children of Balmoral K-12 Community College the best possible start to their schooling years.
At Balmoral Kindergarten we operate Bush Kinder for the 4-year-old group. Our Bush Kinder program is located in a natural environment, away from the education service, to provide valuable opportunities for children to explore the natural environment and to extend the educational program. Our Bush Kinder takes place at Rocklands Reservoir during Terms 2 and 3. Bush Kinder also contributes to improving our children's health and wellbeing.
At Balmoral Kindergarten we offer funded 15 hour 3-year-old (Puggles) and 4-year-old (Joeys) programs. Our programs are a mix of integrated and single-age group sessions. Students in 4-year-old Kindergarten have access to school bus travel both to and from school.
Balmoral Kindergarten is an approved Victorian Government early childhood education provider. This means you are guaranteed a qualified Early Learning Childhood Teacher who delivers an evidence-informed, play-based learning program that meets government guidelines and complies with the National Quality Framework.
