Take a tour
The Eucalyptus Parade Kindergarten has 2 large rooms where we offer 3-year-old and 4-year-old kindergarten programs in Donnybrook. Built in 2022 the kindergarten is located close to the Hume Anglican Grammar School and growing Donnybrook community.
Families provide snacks and lunches. However, cooking is an important part of our curriculum. Children participate in making cakes to celebrate their peers’ birthdays.
We like to engage with the children so they can have a voice in their education. The children help set up the room to maximise their learning. We also encourage the children to set up and pack away their own activities.
Creating different play and learning areas
Having so much space in this new centre helps us to create different play and learning areas. We like to engage with the children so they can have a voice in their education. They help organise the rooms to maximise their learning and we encourage them to set up and pack away their own activities.
Each room has a range of recycled, natural and other materials. Large windows provide plenty of natural light, creating a calm environment for children. There are numerous activities to encourage group play and collaboration. We also have quiet places allowing children to reflect and have time to themselves.
A stimulating outdoor space
Eucalyptus Parade Kindergarten has a stimulating outdoor space providing a large thriving educational hub for the children to enjoy. Large umbrellas cover the area, protecting children throughout the year.
The vibrant area includes:
- a sandpit
- cubby house
- outdoor chalk board
- water play
- age appropriate play equipment
- a yarning circle for story time and Acknowledgement of Country.
We teach children about the importance of sustainability and the environment in our veggie patch.
Building an open dialogue
Our educators build an open dialogue between parents, educators and children. They are always happy to check in with parents to discuss progress.
We connect with our families using the Storypark platform. It is a great resource enabling everyone to track learning milestones.
We can’t wait to meet you and be part of your child’s early learning journey.

What we offer
Meet the manager
Early Years Team Leader
I have been working in children’s services for over 15 years in roles such as disability housing, case management, educational leader and teaching. I have a Bachelor of Education (Primary) and Disability Studies and a Post Graduate Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I love supporting children to learn, grow and develop skills and knowledge that will help them achieve their potential. Early childhood education is an inspirational space in which curiosity, persistence and fun bring learning to life.
Providing children with access to quality education drives me in my roles as Centre Director, Educational Leader and Early Childhood Teacher. I believe that supporting families and building capacity within communities ensures that children have the best opportunities for development and education.
Together with my team of passionate, professional educators, we build trusting relationships with our children and families to ensure that all children have the best opportunities and outcomes.
