Alchester Village Pre-School is a community sessional kindergarten in Boronia, outer eastern Melbourne. The kindergarten was established approximately 45 years ago, and is well known for its fantastic staff, programs and great location. Our philosophy is based on using play as learning tool. Through play, our children learn about problem solving, using their imagination, respect and social standards; all while having fun and making new friends in our caring supportive environment. Our program is guided by the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the National Quality Framework. Our kindergarten provides a fantastic learning environment for three and four years olds. We currently offer, one 4 year old group (rotating over 5 days), and two 3 year old groups. Our teachers and assistants offer their diverse experience and positive, nurturing approach to running our programs and teaching the children.
