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: Glenda Topp

Hi, my name is Glenda Topp. I have been the Centre Director at Woodend Early Learning & Kinder since May 2016. I have a Diploma of Children’s Services and I have extensive experience working across all age groups and within the many facets of the early learning sector. The most enjoyable part of my job is to meet and interact with families and children from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. My goal as Centre Director is to create a warm, caring and safe centre environment where children can grow and reach their full potential. I believe that learning takes place in a social setting where exploration, experimentation, construction and play are core learning methods hence we provide the play based learning for all the different age groups.
Come in and say hello! I’d love to show you and your family what we can offer your child.
