Welcome to Alchester Village Pre-School

Alchester Village Pre-School is a community sessional kindergarten in Boronia, outer eastern Melbourne. The kindergarten was established 51 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, 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.  We are committed to providing a safe working environment for all, attending to all children needs allowing them to be heard, be respected and be an integral part of decision making process.

As you can see from the photos here, the kinder environment is amazing with numerous mature trees outside providing a naturally cool, shaded yard in summer, allowing the children to experience the four seasons as they lose their leaves in autumn and re-grow in spring. There is also a great area out the front where families can socialise and get to know each other.
Our great location has a playgroup next door and school over the back fence.

Kindergarten is a very exciting time for the children and their families and we aim for all to have very happy memories of their time at Alchester Village.
