Monash Drive Early Learning and Kinder offers child care in Dandenong South in thoughtfully designed learning environments to encourage your child’s sense of curiousity and wonder. Our centre provides a holistic and engaging educational curriculum that encourages children to explore and discover. Our passionate and professional team of educators are dedicated to building strong, reciprocal partnerships with children and their families. We look forward to welcoming your child to the wonderful world of learning at Monash Drive Early Learning and Kinder.

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: Bec O'Halloran

Hello, my name is Bec and I am the Centre Director at Monash Drive Early Learning and Kinder.

I have been in the early learning sector since 2004 and held many roles during this time, including positions in the UK and Europe. All my previous experiences, have broadened and contributed to the knowledge and passion I have for the early learning sector today.

I am a very big believer in communication and you will receive plenty from us as your child settles into our wonderful early learning service. Being a mum myself, I understand the mummy feeling we sometimes get, when you just need that little bit of reassurance and to see how your child’s day is going. Whether it is your first child or 4th child in care, if they are 2 months or 4 years old, we encourage our families to check in with a phone call whenever they feel the urge.

Monash Drive is a wonderful place for your child to start their learning and development journey. We believe in building strong relationships with our families to ensure the children are provided with the best quality care and believe that consistency between the home and early learning environment is central to the children’s wellbeing and happiness.

We have a team of 12 passionate and inspiring Educators. Each staff member is qualified in early childhood learning and first aid.  Our team work hard to ensure that the children in our care are safe, well-supervised and challenged in their learning on a daily basis.

We are a very multicultural centre and incorporate aspects of the world’s cultures into the children’s learning and routines. We have Educators that are fluent in Hindi, Spanish and Singhalese to name a few.

Our centre cook provides nutritious and delicious meals from all over the world and can provide you with recipes if your child has some favourites you would like to cook at home. .

It is important to me that all our children and families feel welcome and an important part of Monash Drive family, we would love to take you on a tour of our centre and meet your family soon.
