Alamanda Kindergarten

Alamanda Kindergarten is a modern, purpose-built kindergarten located alongside Alamanda College in Point Cook. Our team of nurturing and experienced educators deliver high quality and inclusive three and four-year-old kindergarten programs that help each child realise their potential. Our educators will partner with you – your child’s most important educator – to develop a play-based learning program that builds on your child’s interests and capabilities.

Play is the best way for children to learn. That's why at Alamanda Kindergarten, your child's learning program will incorporate a variety of open-ended and structured play-based learning experiences. Activities will be guided by your child's interests and capabilities, ensuring your child gets the most out of their early learning experience.

Activities will include:

  • language and literature
  • music and movement
  • art and craft
  • dramatic play
  • science and maths  
  • sensory motor activities
  • messy play
  • cooking and healthy eating
  • recycling and sustainability
  • activities to promote physical coordination
  • excursions and incursions. 

These play-based activities will help your child develop important social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive skills.

All our learning programs are based on the National Early Years Learning Framework “Belonging, Being and Becoming” and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
 

Your child’s childcare program will be delivered by Alamanda Kindergarten's qualified, experienced and nurturing teachers. Our educators are wholly committed to ensuring each child receives the best possible experience at childcare. Our educators speak a variety of languages, reflecting our culturally diverse community, and extending children's learning. 

Educators will work in partnership with you – your child’s most important teacher – to develop a kindergarten program that reflects and builds on your child’s interests, curiosities and skills. Educators will also recognise and celebrate your child's unique background and culture, incorporating these into their early learning program. 

Educators will share live updates about your child’s learning via Storypark - a secure, login based ePortfolio. Documentation may include photographs, videos, learning stories, and samples of your child’s work. Storypark will also allow you to contribute to and comment on what your child is doing while in care. You can share your family activities and your child’s updates with teachers via Storypark too.

If your child has additional needs, our educators will work with you to ensure your child gets the most out of their time at Alamanda Kindergarten. Our educators can also connect your family with specialist support if needed.
