Child Care Centre Prahran

Donald Street Early Learning and Kinder child care in Prahran offers natural and high quality resources in an environment designed to encourage exploration and discovery. Our team of passionate educators strive to build positive partnerships with families and the wider community to the best possible early learning experience for your child. We guide an engaging, educational curriculum ready to meet your child at their unique point of development. Our child-directed learning experiences take a holistic approach to learning and development and making learning fun! We look forward to welcoming you to the Donald Street Early Learning & Kinder community!

At our centre, you will find:

  • Our Bachelor qualified Kinder Teacher is keen to not only get your child school-ready, but to work in partnership you to build a resilient and caring child who is ready to embrace the world.
  • Our onsite cook is making fresh and nutritious meals to fuel your child’s body and mind. We provide breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late supper to support your child’s learning and play all day.
  • Our environments are purposefully designed to meet every child at their unique point of development. We understand not every child or family is the same, and our learning spaces reflect that. Like you, we wonder who they will be if we offer them the best start in life…
  • Our holistic curriculum is designed to achieve not only school readiness, but to nurture thoughtful, understanding and tolerant young citizens in a way that makes learning fun. Who knows what amazing ideas lie in these young minds?
  • When we say open-door policy, we mean it. We are here to support families in every way we can. Whenever you need to talk, we are here to listen.

Our fully-funded, all day Kindergarten program is led by a Bachelor trained Early Childhood Teacher. We offer a stimulating curriculum with the aim of building confident and active learners. Using a holistic approach to education, we combine school readiness programs with learning experiences to foster the social and emotional development of young children. Our integrated indoor/outdoor curriculum is child-directed and seeks to engage children in meaningful learning experiences that get them excited about learning and confident to commence their formal education journey.

Meet our Director: Tara Winslow

Hi my name is Tara, I started working with young children in 2007 and continue to appreciate working in the early childhood industry. I believe young children are incredible human beings who we can not only teach, but learn from. Children often remind me to enjoy the present moment, take on new challenges and learn many new interesting facts from the different types of trains in the world to how to save extinct animals.

I strive to ensure that the children and families feel safe, supported and respected during their time and education with us. I believe in working together as a community to ensure that children have the opportunity to learn in different ways to prepare them for the next stage of their lives.

During my time away from Donald Street, I’m often outside exploring different nooks around Victoria, tyring to discover new markets to buy more clutter for my house (which currently looks like a flea market all of its own) or going to Melbourne Zoo for the 110th time with my two daughters.
