To provide high quality education for all children in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment where young children can explore, play, learn and grow whilst our early learning environment recognises of the importance of early childhood education in setting a child up for lifelong learning.


At St. John’s Kindergarten we prioritise the well-being and holistic development of the children in our care, in an all-inclusive, supportive, and engaging learning environment that fosters curiosity, creativity, and a love of learning.

We recognise each individual child and their unique developmental needs and nurture this while delivering enjoyable learning experiences that enable and empower children to reach their full potential.

We maintain a collaborative culture of reflection to actively address the needs of our diverse community, inclusive of First Nations peoples within our local and wider community. Our commitment to evolving contemporary practices, centred on the rights of children, families, educators, and the wider community, helps create an open and supportive environment.

Our kindergarten’s educational program is firmly grounded in the Victorian Early Years Learning Development Framework (VEYLDF) and the Child Safe Standards. We are committed to the highest standards by seeking to incorporate evolving educational theories and current research within the early childhood field. We strive to consistently meet and exceed these standards, ensuring the best possible learning experiences for our young children.
