The Victorian Government has announced Stage 3 restrictions to help reduce people’s chances of infection. However at present, this does not include the closures of early childhood education and care services, including our kinder.
We will resume sessions as normal after the school holidays, on April 14, 2020.

Bundoora Pre-school is located at 20 Noorong Avenue in Bundoora, Victoria. The pre-school is community based and governed by a Committee of Management. Bundoora Pre-school offers both three-year-old and four-year-old programs. The pre-school is located within close proximity to public transport, as well as the local primary and secondary schools. Bundoora Pre-school is within the Banyule City Council area.
At Bundoora Pre-school, we believe play is natural and vital to the development of every child. Emphasis is placed on the provision of opportunities, in both three and four-year-old groups, for children to play and experiment through open-ended experiences and more structured activities.
Bundoora Pre-school is a wonderful place for a child to begin their early education. When a family becomes a part of the pre-school community, they become a part of something very special.
