Springside Kindergarten Overview & Philosophy

Springside Kindergarten was established in 2009 to cater for the growing needs of the Melton Shire community. The Kindergarten is situated on the same grounds as Springside Primary School and holds a strong connection with the school. We are a sessional kindergarten with five four year old classes and two three year old classes. Springside Kindergarten completed its assessment and rating with the Department of Education and Training in March 2015 and was granted ‘Exceeding the National Quality Standards’.

The Kindergarten’s Philosophy guides our entire program and practice, reflecting our values and core beliefs, while working in conjunction with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

Springside Kindergarten operates above the required staffing legislative standard and seeks to employ quality staff to care and educate your children. The Kindergarten currently has 4 qualified teachers and 8 diploma trained educators working throughout the week.

In addition to this the Kindergarten Director Amanda Niddrie is able to assist families, children and staff throughout the day. Amanda has worked at the Kindergarten for the past 3 years in this role and came to us with 5 years’ experience as a Director in the childcare industry. Amanda holds a Masters of Teaching and is always able to assist with school readiness.
