Kathleen Kelly Kindergarten

​Originally started down by the river, Kathleen Kelly Kindergarten is  a double unit kindergarten in the heart of Mildura, on the corner of Lemon and Eighth St.

We offer one of the biggest outdoor play areas in Mildura with large trees which provide natural shade and a welcoming environment for the children.
 
We are a family friendly and culturally sensitive kindergarten and believe that children learn best through play. We offer a kindergarten program which provides a wide variety of educational experiences and allows the children to follow their interests.
 
Our experienced educators are happy and friendly and pride themselves on delivering an educational program that assists the children to have fun, develop friendships and grow to their maximum potential.
 
Our kindergarten provides for three 4yr old groups, each having 15 hours and two 3yr old groups with 3 hours each.
