Beaconsfield Kindergarten prides itself on providing an environment where everybody belongs. We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as Australia’s First Peoples and ensure a culture of child safety. We recognise and value the experience and contributions each family brings. We actively practice respect, acceptance and inclusion, valuing each child’s strengths and differences. Educators promote and support high expectations to maximise learning opportunities for children of all abilities.


Beaconsfield Kindergarten is a child and family centred service that values positive and respectful relationships. We welcome the cultures, languages and traditions of our community, supporting a strong sense of belonging for children, families and educators. Educators are committed to open communication, sharing each child’s learning and development with families. We respect the individuality, knowledge and experience each member of our team brings. Educators model and guide positive behaviour, scaffold learning and support each child’s wellbeing through high-quality interactions.


Beaconsfield Kindergarten provides rich, stimulating and nurturing environments where children can take ownership and be active participants in their learning. Environments are flexible and encourage children to explore, question and problem solve in a cooperative, collaborative and creative manner. We embrace nature play, encouraging children to develop a love of and respect for the natural environment. Through bush kinder, educators support children’s connection with community spaces as a place for learning. 


Our kinder embraces the benefits of a play-based program to nurture a love of learning in each child. Children’s agency is developed as they are encouraged to follow their own interests, being active, curious and engaged participants in the learning program. Through play, children make sense of the world around them and develop life skills. Play makes learning fun!!


Beaconsfield Kindergarten is proudly a community-based kindergarten with strong, established links to our local schools, council, essential services and community groups. All members of our kindergarten community, including children, families, staff and our Committee of Management, work collaboratively to ensure our service remains a respected and high-quality provider of early education programs. Active family engagement is encouraged and contributes to a meaningful community spirit within our service.


Educators value the learning that occurs within each child’s family prior to their commencement at kindergarten. We believe collaboration with families is integral to high-quality educational programs that optimise each child’s potential. A continuous cycle of planning underpins our learning programs, including a flexible balance of child-directed learning experiences and those led by our educators. Our staffing team is committed to furthering their own professional knowledge and skills, and individual growth, learning and team cooperation are encouraged and supported.

Beaconsfield Kindergarten acknowledges the Bunurong People, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and learn. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present and emerging.
