Making our mural - November 2016

As part of a 2 session incursion, our friends from Baluk Arts shared dreamtime stories with the children. They learnt about Bunjil the eagle, our dreamtime ancestors and traditional artist tools.

Early in 2016 Beaumaris 3YO Kinder was lucky enough to win a grant to spend on our large outdoor area. Thank you to Bayside City Council for having faith in our vision and helping to finance our new projects.

Baluk Arts is a non profit Aboriginal Arts Organisation. They were commissioned to help the children prepare a large 2 piece mural as part of the outdoor upgrade. The 2016 children loved helping to paint the murals, and the murals are now available for all the kids to enjoy in 2017 and beyond.

About Us

Beaumaris 3YO Kinder is a specialist 3 year old learning facility, with a focus on caring and socialisation. We have a large light filled room and a fun filled spacious playground; used both for our kinder program and occasional care session.

We do not have a 4 year old kinder program. For kinder we cater exclusively for the younger children and their specific needs. 4 and 5 year old children are welcome to join us for our occasional care session.

We are a community run centre and encourage all parents to be involved in their child's education, by providing support for the program, fundraising and committee. Fundraising events for 2017 include a cake stall, Bunnings BBQ and the Yates seeds fundraiser.

Staff

TEACHER and OCCASIONAL CARE: Shona Burley - Bachelor in Early Childhood Studies (Monash University)

ASSISTANT: Di Thorson - Certificate 3 in Children's Services.

Kinder program

We have a full and informative program that starts slowly in term 1 as the children get used to their new setting, and fills up quickly as the year progresses.

If you'd like to hear more about our activities or policies, please contact us for a visit with our teacher after a session. We don't have tours during sessions but you are most welcome to organise a visit after the children have finished for the day.

Enrolment Process

For both kindergarten classes and occasional care 2018, please contact us directly for information.

Please note....
You do not have to be Bayside residents to enrol. Children from neighbouring council areas are also invited to apply.

Your child must be 3 years old to attend. We allow you to secure your spot before your child turns 3, however full term fees need to be paid from acceptance so as to not disadvantage the kinder for offering late starts.

It is expected that all children will at least be in the process of toilet training as we have no nappy changing facilities.
