Albert Park Pre-School, established in 1948, is a community sessional Kindergarten located in Melbourne’s inner bayside suburb of Albert Park. Just a stone throw from Albert Park Village, the Kindergarten has long been a fixture in the local community and prides itself on promoting wellbeing for all and helping forge friendships between children and families alike.

Our Philosophy revolves around play as a tool for learning and our program development is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).  Our teaching practice is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.

Our Kindergarten provides a wonderful learning environment for 3 and 4 year olds.  Our teachers and educators have wide-ranging experience and a nurturing, positive approach.   We have four groups in total - two groups of 3s and two groups of 4s.  If you would like to add your child to our wait list, please select the enrolment tab.

Albert Park Pre-School is currently rated EXCELLENT by the Australian Children's Education & Care Authority (ACECQA) under the National Quality Framework and we are very proud to be Australia's first certified carbon neutral early childhood service.
