Boroondara Kindergarten

Located in the vibrant and multi-cultural Richmond precinct, Boroondara Kindergarten is a serene oasis where children can learn, explore and discover in a safe and caring environment. Our kindergarten is a well-resourced centre offering an enriching indoor and outdoor learning environment. We have been supporting local children and our community by providing high-quality kindergarten programs since 1914. 

As a community-based centre, we value and respect our partnerships with families and the local community. We encourage and support families to participate in our programs and their child’s learning journey.

Our dedicated educators deliver stimulating play-based three and four-year-old kindergarten programs that support children's interests and capabilities.

Boroondara Kindergarten has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard.


Facilities and programs

At Boroondara Kindergarten we're committed to creating a welcoming place where children, families and educators feel a strong sense of belonging; space to explore identity, freedom to grow and learn and opportunities to contribute in meaningful ways. Fundamental to these elements is our commitment to building mutually respectful relationships with and between children, families, educators and the community.

Our kindergarten programs ensure children, families and educators engage in learning experiences that reflect children’s interests, experiences, knowledge and skills. We provide opportunities that emphasise children’s meaningful learning about themselves, others and the world around them through open-ended play. 

Identity is essential to our kindergarten community. We celebrate and promote families' culture and language and encourage children to build a bridge between their home and kindergarten. We live in the here and now, engaging in life’s joys and complexities, looking to express our potential, dreams and needs.

We're committed to children’s rights as declared in the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child and to making these rights real in children lives. We are guided by the principles and outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia – Belonging, Being & Becoming and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. Our professional practice is underpinned by Early Childhood Australia’s Code of Ethics.

We have identified the need for longer 4-year-old kindergarten sessions in the Richmond Community. If you are interested in two 7.5-hour sessions for 2023 (Monday 8:30am to 4:00pm and Thursday 8:30am to 4:00pm), please get in touch with our Enrolment Officer on (03) 8481 1117 or to express your interest.
