Learning philosophy

Princes Close Early Years Service offers a Funded Kindergarten program for eligible 3- and 4-Year-Old children, with the added flexibility of longer hours to meet families changing needs.

Long Day Care is offered for younger children as well, making it very convenient for families, as siblings can maintain their connection in the environment.

Our higher-than-ratio Kindergarten Educator Team offer a rich learning environment to meet and extend children's learning to prepare them to move on to the Primary environment effectively. We would love you to see our program in action.

We believe in supporting children's agency of choice whilst fostering respectful relationships, with the Educator Team facilitating children's growing independence skills.


The Victorian Government Free Kinder initiative is available at this kindergarten.

Commonly referred to as an Integrated Program, kinder hours at this service are delivered as part of a long daycare enrolment. As this is an integrated kinder program, the free kinder subsidy reduces yearly fees (up to $2000). The overall out-of-pocket cost of attending this service will be dependent on the number of days attended and any Commonwealth Childcare Subsidy entitlements.

For further fee information please contact service directly.
