Albert Park Pre-School, established in 1948, is a community sessional Kindergarten located in Melbourne’s inner bayside suburb of Albert Park. Just a stone throw from Albert Park Village, the Kindergarten has long been a fixture in the local community and prides itself on promoting wellbeing for all and helping forge friendships between children and families alike.
Our Philosophy revolves around play as a tool for learning and our program development is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). Our teaching practice is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.
Our Kindergarten provides a wonderful learning environment for 3 and 4 year olds. Our teachers and educators have wide-ranging experience and a nurturing, positive approach. If you would like to add your child to our wait list, please select the enrolment tab.
