Auburn Kindergarten & Childcare Centre was first opened in February 1977 and was the 1000th Kindergarten to open in Victoria. Over the years the parent-run Committee of Management has continued to improve and maintain the facilities, and the building was recently refurbished in 2016 by our local Council, the City of Boroondara.
Our Centre provides long day care for children between the ages of 3 – 6 years. We also provide separate stand-alone sessional kindergarten programs for 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds.
The majority of parents choose to enrol in more than one program resulting in flexible hours and programs to suit all families.
We are a high quality not–for-profit, community based Centre staffed by enthusiastic, caring, experienced and highly qualified Early Childhood professionals.
Our Centre has been assessed under the Government’s National Quality Standard and has continued to maintain an overall rating of EXCEEDING. We were last assessed in November 2018.
Our Centre is truly unique. We urge you to make an appointment to come and take a look – you will not be disappointed in what you see.
WHAT PARENTS THINK
“Both our children have come through Auburn and have absolutely loved it. We never had the struggle to drop them off, they couldn't wait to go each day! The Kinder provides the best of both worlds, long day care in one space and sessional kinder in another. The educators are all thoughtful, caring and considerate of the needs and interests of each child and the learning/play spaces they create are fun, innovative and evolving all the time. We genuinely could not have been happier with our experience at Auburn, we will genuinely miss it when our kids go to school!"
