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 therefore holds a well-built connection with the school.

Our strong collaboration enables the kindergarten to build positive partnerships for both our families and children. Regardless of which school your child will attend after kinder, the connection to a school environment, it’s facilities and students, helps children establish a sense of belonging to a larger community. During transitions, the kindergarten works with your child’s enrolled school with all parties seeing the benefits of prior engagement to a school environment.

Springside Kindergarten is extremely proud of its ‘EXCEEDING RATING’ after being assessed by ACECQA in March 2021. This is the second consecutive exceeding rating that the service has been awarded. The kindergarten works diligently to ensure we meet the current Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011, Education and Care Services National Law Act 2012 and the Kindergarten Guide whilst incorporating the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework into our everyday programming.


Our Team

Springside Kindergarten’s team is made up of a range of passionate and dedicated people. Our partnership with Springside Primary School is integral to our operations and the kindergarten is fortunate to have a range of professionals from the school supporting your child’s learning and development throughout the year. The Springside Primary School Parent Council, as well as the Parents Association, work in collaboration with the kindergarten to ensure quality teaching and learning as well as partnerships with families and the community.


Each member of the kindergarten staff has an Early Childhood specific qualification and participates in ongoing professional development. All members of staff have current First Aid Certificates as well as training in CPR and the management of Anaphylaxis and Asthma, OH&S and Child Safe Training.
