​​Galada Kindergarten

Galada Kindergarten is a newly built service established in 2014 as part of the Galada Community Centre and is managed by YMCA Whittlesea. We serve the local community by providing exceptional educational programs, with experienced educators and a diverse curriculum.

​Galada Kindergarten has 3 x 33 place rooms, catering for 3 and 4 Year Old Kindergarten programs which are delivered to over 230 children each week. Our curriculum and choices reflects the National Quality Framework and Victoria Early Years Learning Frameworks and encourages open and honest communication between families, children, and educators.

We promote social and emotional wellbeing development. We acknowledge that these aspects of learning have a significant impact on children's futures. Part of our curriculum involves collaboratively promoting children's independent learning through scaffolding, open ended questions and active exploration. W​e believe children have the opportunities to create their own positive memories in many different nurturing and enriching environments.
Educators embrace and respect family beliefs, cultural practices and ways of being. Through doing so, this allows educators to have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and connection with each child and family. Educators, Children and Families are all part of a joint community. All have the right to know they are welcomed and belong. Diversity and indiv​idualism is a valued part of our community.
