The Heights Kindergarten is connected to Mill Park Heights Child Care Centre and has operated in the local community for over 30 years. We are located close to Mill Park Primary School, Stables Shopping Centre and Westfield Plenty Valley.
We offer 3 and 4 Year Old Kindergarten programs and our curriculum has been built to reflect both the National Quality Framework and Victoria Early Years Learning Frameworks. Where possible we like to engage with the children so they can have a voice in their education. We invite children to make suggestions on how the room should be set up to maximise their learning.
Our centre has 2 large 33 place rooms and wonderful outdoor learning area. Having so much space helps us to create different play and learning environments. We use a range of recycled, natural and man-made materials in each room and also have large windows which allows us to have lots of natural light that creates a calm environment for children. Within our rooms, there are numerous activities set up to encourage group play and collaboration. In addition to this, we create quiet places which allow children to reflect and have time to themselves.
The Heights Kindergarten has a stimulating outdoor space complete with giant teepee, fairy garden, construction wall, arts and crafts, sandpit and vegetable garden.
Creating a clear and open communication line between our families and our educators is important to us. We use different methods of communication with families including face to face chats, phone calls and email.
At kinder the children and family provide snacks and lunches. However, cooking is a very important part of our curriculum. Children participate in making birthday cakes to celebrate their peer’s birthday! We also grow our own vegetables in our garden, which we harvest and use in cooking with the children, as well as a part of cultural celebrations involving families and our community to share their experiences and knowledge.
We can wait to meet you and be part of your child’s early learning journey!
