Mt Atkinson Kindergarten Opening 2023

9 November 2022


Kindergarten opening in 2023 in the heart of new Mt Atkinson development.

Outstanding early years education is just one of the attractions for families moving to the new City of Melton Mt Atkinson development.

Early Childhood Management Services (ECMS) is the chosen manager for the new kindergarten in the Mt Atkinson development. Working alongside the Melton City Council and the Victorian Government, the centre opens in early 2023 for term 1 and families are already enrolling in the kindergarten programs.

The Mt Atkinson Kindergarten offers free-kindergarten programs for three- and four-year-old children, adding over 300 early learning places to the local community.

Located in the heart of the new development, as part of the Mt Atkinson Children's and Community Centre, it’s across from shops, close to the new Westfield and next door to a planned recreation reserve and primary school. Children will be able to build friendships and develop strong social connections that carry through their early years to primary school.

The kindergarten features airy, modern rooms with big windows and visibility between rooms. Offering many learning resources that encourage curiosity, collaboration with friends and hands on play. Children can move seamlessly between indoor and outdoor areas where the shady landscaped area has loads of space, plants, and natural features for them to explore and experience.

Designed around your child's interests and needs, at Mt Atkinson Kindergarten families can expect:

Consistent Practice – our programs will deliver a consistent experience, high-safety standards and good learning outcomes.

Cultural Diversity - we respect and integrate children's cultural backgrounds to create rich and diverse learning communities.

Open Communication - our educators use the Story Park app to provide videos, pictures and messages about child’s learning.

Partnership - we believe strong family engagement and collaboration is an integral part in building a successful and high-quality early childhood practice.
