Government-Funded Kinder Program at No Extra Cost


At Donvale Early Learning Centre we offer a comprehensive funded kindergarten program.


Full Day Kindergarten Programs

Our 3 year old and 4 year old kindergarten programs run for 7.5 hours, every day of the week! Our extended kindergarten programs provide children with more opportunities to build their learning foundations through play-based experiences throughout the day.


Highly Qualified and Passionate Educators

Our Kindergarten Teachers regularly attend professional development courses to provide best practice teaching for your child.

Our 4 year old room is run by 2 registered Early Childhood Teachers, providing above-ratio care to ensure all children receive quality teaching tailored to their individual needs.


Celebrate Each Child's Individuality
We are dedicated to providing an incredible learning experience for your child.

As such, we focus on nurturing the needs and passions of each child to help achieve their individual learning outcomes.


STEAM Inspired Practices
Our educational program includes play-based experiences around STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, and Mathematics) to provide children with holistic learning foundations.

We also focus on building children's emotional and social skills to ensure they are well-prepared for their school years ahead.


Learning Continuity

We provide care and education for children aged 6 months to 5 years old, as well as funded kindergarten programs for 3 and 4 year olds. This means that your child will always have familiar faces and a warm environment for their learning journey.

Our room leaders also have detailed handover meetings each year to ensure the educators in your child’s room deeply understand their individual learning goals and needs, providing a smooth transition each year for your child.


Free Kindergarten

Children enrolled in our 3 year old or 4 year old funded kindergarten program will receive the Free Kinder subsidy of up to $2,000 per child, every year. Families will receive a fee offset each month, after their first month of enrolment.
