Ingles Street Early Learning and Kinder offer child care in Port Melbourne with a dedicated and highly qualified team of educators to guide your child through the beginning of their educational journey. We take great pride in our thoughtfully designed learning spaces, and strive to create and environment and curriculum that reflects the needs and interests of the children in our care. Our program incorporates various incursions and excursions around our local community as we believe this kind of culture to be a valuable asset to the development of confident learners and thoughtful citizens. We understand the value of caring relationships between educators and families being the building blocks towards a successful learning journey. Come by for a visit at Ingles Street Early Learning & Kinder today.

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: Sharyn Friend

Hi my name is Sharyn and I have been in the industry for over 30 years starting as an educator and then I have worked in a variety of positions such as start-up, Centre Directing and Area Managing as well as having two grown up daughters myself.
Having many years of experience in this rewarding industry has given me a greater understanding of children’s development as well as forming wonderful relationships with families and educators. I believe all children deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in.
I take pride in my position and treat the centre as my own and strive to offer families and educators a wonderful experience as well as embedding good practices and outcomes for children so I look forward to sharing this journey with you and your child.
