Our Kindergarten is an integral part of our school providing children with the unique opportunity to integrate from kinder to school within the one location. The Kindergarten children and their families are part of the school community.

The Kindergarten offers a play based program based on the needs and interests of the children, using the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) and the thoughts and ideas of Reggio Emilia Philosophy, as the basis of our planning and program.

The kindergarten curriculum is developed by staff after direct observation of the children and in response to the stories that are written for the children’s portfolios. This allows for each child’s experience to be tailored to their needs.

We highly value the links between home, kindergarten, school and the wider community and work in partnership with all of these groups to provide the best start for each individual child on their education journey.

Japanese Program

Box Hill North Kindergarten children are very fortunate to participate in the Learn Languages at Kindergarten Program. The program helps children to get the best start in life by giving them the opportunity to learn and play in another language, in order to promote brain development and literacy skills, amongst other benefits. The children enjoy songs, games and stories as they are learn about the Japanese language and culture. They can been seen participating enthusiastically and it is evident that their young brains are extremely active during Japanese time.

To celebrate the opening of our Japanese program, our Kindergarten was recently visited by James Merlino MP Minister for Education and Paul Hamer MP State Member for Box Hill. The kindergarten children showed off their new skills to the visitors.

Contact for a tour

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
