Walker Street Community Kindergarten

​Developing a sense of wonder, enthusiasm and a love of learning in each child!

Walker Street Community Kindergarten provides a welcoming, creative, and vibrant environment. Our dedicated and experienced staff nurture and stimulate children’s curiosity, ideas and self-expression. Our diverse programs provide children with opportunities to develop independence and confidence. We are located on a residential street in Clifton Hill, backing onto Quarries Park, and offer 3 & 4 year old programs.

Walker Street Kindergarten recognises that starting kindergarten is an important milestone in your child’s life. Together, we will make the transition from home to kindergarten as smooth as possible. In our 4 year old program, we offer a diverse range of experiences with a focus on encouraging our children to develop a strong, confident sense of self, in preparation for primary school.
