At Altona Kindergarten we recognise the importance of your child’s early years. To support early childhood development, we've created a stimulating and nurturing environment that encourages self-confidence, imagination and respect for others and the natural environment. We place a strong emphasis on understanding and embracing the diverse backgrounds of the families within our kindergarten. To reflect this, cultural learning and celebrations are incorporated into our programs.

As a community-based kindergarten, we pride ourselves on our trusted partnerships with parents and families, and we aim to improve and adapt our services to meet the changing needs of our community.

Our caring and professional early childhood educators will develop and adapt our programs to suit your child’s unique interests and abilities. Play-based learning is at the heart of our programs. We embrace children’s curiosity and use it to guide planned activities. Altona Kindergarten follows a healthy eating program. For lunch, we work with families to provide healthy meals that incorporate children’s culture and eating habits.

Altona Kindergarten has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard. Information about the National Quality Standard.

Facilities and programs

Your child will discover first hand the value of information and communications technology. All children have access to wirelessly networked laptops for research and play-based learning activities. 

Our beautiful shaded gardens have been landscaped in partnership with parents and the City of Hobsons Bay. The innovative design of our outdoor area includes a grassed hill, a rubber rock and soft fall area, and a double swing frame with tanbark underneath. Our outdoor tables are perfect for smaller activities and outdoor lunches.

Altona Kindergarten’s grounds provide the perfect environment for your child to engage in plenty of adventures while developing and refining gross motor and fine motor skills.
