About us

At Keilor Village Preschool we believe children learn what they live. By ‘playing out’ what they see and experience in the real world, children gain a greater understanding of the world around them. That’s why play-based learning is the foundation of our programs. Our professional and passionate educators have developed programs that encourage children to develop their independence, personalities and ideas while understanding the importance of respect for others. We promote the concepts of tolerance, praise, acceptance, recognition, sharing, fairness, security and friendliness while providing a child-centred play-based program that meets the needs of individual children, their families and our community.

Keilor Village Preschool has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard.

Centre Philosophy

Our program offers children an environment to develop their learning as curious individuals who have the opportunity to play, learn, grow, and develop their skills in a nurturing, inclusive environment. We encourage children to lead their play through curiosity, connection to their world and the ability to reach their potential. Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive space for children to explore and learn, helping them to develop their confidence, creativity, and independence. With our program, we empower children to discover their passions and interests while developing the skills they need to succeed in school and life.

Meet your Nominated Supervisor

I’m Judith Fenner, the Nominated Supervisor at Keilor Village Preschool. Throughout my Early Childhood Education career, I have held roles as a Teacher and Educational Leader. I enjoy working with our dedicated team and highly value our play-based pedagogy, and embracing respectful, inclusive celebrations in our diverse community. I’m particularly proud of our community engagement, which allows us to better recognise and support the unique needs of our families. Our central location has given us a high profile within the community, fostering tight-knit relationships with the families we serve. We look forward to welcoming you to Keilor Village Preschool.

Frequently asked questions

Your child will need a backpack or bag, a refillable water bottle, a change of clothes, a wide-brim sun hat and their favourite toy, which can help them settle in.

Children love community visits. Experiencing different environments and groups of people helps them learn. You’ll get plenty of information in advance and have opportunities to ask questions. The centre will also need your written permission before your child can take part.

Germs spread quickly, and home is the best place when we’re unwell. Please keep your child home for at least 24 hours if they show any of these symptoms.

• 38C and higher temperature

• Vomiting or diarrhoea

• Rashes that can’t be explained

• Red, swollen and discharging eyes

• Unusually lethargic, irritable or not eating and drinking

When your child is feeling better with no symptoms for 24 hours, they’re welcome to return.

Infectious diseases

If your child has an infectious disease, please keep them at home and let us know straight away. Whatever you tell us is confidential.

If your child becomes unwell while at the centre, teachers will make them comfortable and ask you to pick them up. If you’re not available, they’ll call one of the other contacts listed on your enrolment form.

Whether it’s a one-off issue or requires ongoing care, talk to your teachers if your child is on regular medication or has food allergies or intolerances. The team is there to support your family, and the more you can tell them, the better they can help. They will ask you for information from your doctor about how much your child takes and how often. Also, let the team know when anything changes. They will set up a new plan to support you, including any necessary training.

ECMS is a Child Safe organisation. We rigorously follow the child-safe standards set out by the Victorian Government. These standards guide us to drive a child safe culture, provide appropriate strategies and actions to put the interests of children first, keeping them safe from harm. We are committed to involving families and communities in our efforts to keep children safe.

Engaging in risky play is vital for children’s learning and development. Our teaching teams plan for and support opportunities for children to explore their environment and challenge themselves within play. Navigating risk promotes problem solving, persistence and resilience, and in a safe environment, is lots of fun!

    ECMS acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands on which we live, learn, work and play. Aboriginal people have a long tradition of teaching and learning through sharing their connections with country, community, language and culture. We recognise their continuing connection to the country, and we pay respects to elders past and present.
