Germain Street Kindergarten

​Childhood is a precious time, a time to be honoured and treasured.

At Germain Street Kindergarten, we provide high quality 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs, in a safe, nurturing and respectful environment. Our vision is to provide our children with early childhood learning opportunities that support and nurture their individual experiences.

Our passionate and dedicated educators, in partnership with our enthusiastic and supportive parents, make our preschool a very special place. Wonderful friendships are forged and children develop a connectedness to the community.

Facilities and Services

    We have an open learning environment; where children can choose to pursue their different interests, either indoors or outdoors, with flexibility.

    We encourage children to play, observe, interact and respect the natural environment, and we incorporate sustainable practices. We also teach and model reusing and recycling in our activities.

    Our curriculum supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and creative learning. Music and literature are integral parts of our program. We celebrate multiculturalism and include a variety of cultural events.

    We maintain close connections with our local community and take children on excursions to help them discover their local area. These outings also teach the children about the world around them.

    Germain Street Kindergarten has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards, demonstrating our commitment to children and their families.


Enrolments for 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten are through the City of Monash Central Enrolment Scheme – see here.
