Our Kindergarten Program

At Lakeview Kindergarten & Childcare Centre, Lilydale, we believe that your child’s Kindergarten year is such an important part of your child’s educational journey.

Our Kindergarten Program caters for both 3-year old’s and 4-year old’s.

Our Kindergarten program is an accredited program run by a Qualified Early Childhood teacher (Christy) who holds a Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies (4-year qualification) and has over 15 years’ experience teaching. Our Kindergarten Assistant (Karen) has over 14 years’ experience and holds a Diploma of Early Childhood & Care.

They strive to provide an environment that is relaxed and where the children feel safe and secure, have fun and are encouraged to develop a strong sense of wellbeing and identity.

We believe that through a play-based program our children come to know and understand the world around them. Their curiosity is fulfilled by the use of fantasy, imagination, independence and sensory exploration. Our program is based on the National Early Years Learning Framework with both child initiated and teacher initiated activities.

Our educators work to engage each child in the following key areas:

Z

Social Skills – such as how to make new friends, how to play with other children in a calm, sharing and rewarding way. How to express themselves and listen to others.

Z

Self-awareness and respect for others and the environment.

Z

Emotional Skills such as understanding their own feelings and developing empathy for others.

Z

Language, literacy and numeracy skills.

Z

A joy for learning and group activities to ensure children reach their full potential as they progress through life.

Z

Exposure to new ideas and concepts and encouragement to become independent learners.

Through discovery, discussion and interactions, children are encouraged to learn and grow.

Throughout the year we provide numerous learning experiences to help with school readiness such as:

Z

Colour days

Z

Lunch box days

Z

School uniform days

Z

Writing and posting letters

Z

Dental care

Z

Character dress up days

We also provide at no cost to parents:

Four incursions each year based on the children’s interests e.g. reptile incursion, farm animals, puppet shows etc.
We discount a visiting music company, Mini Maestros who attend each fortnight and conduct a half hour lesson.

In addition, we provide hearing tests conducted by Knox Audiology which are bulk billed to ensure your child’s hearing
is checked before starting school.

We also conduct Parent Teacher interviews to discuss your child’s development in the year prior to them going to school.

Read What Our Happy Parents Are Saying

My son (6) attended and daughter (2 1/2) is now attending Lakeview Kindergaten & Childcare. We love the staff there, they genuinely care about the children and their welfare and learning. The low staff turnover proves that the carers love their job and allows both children to bond and the parents to gain a rapport with the staff.

Bree – Montrose

100 stars! My son was there from six months until school ready!
They are the best ladies in the world, they all changed my son’s life forever! Noticed things I didn’t, gave him unconditional love, and loved him just as I would! I would never go anywhere else!
This is the most amazing place with the most amazing bunch of ladies I have ever met! Family forever now!

Sharni – Lilydale

“Bub number two has just joined his big brother at childcare. Both boys started at 8mo and my eldest is now 4. These ladies give above and beyond always. The transition made so much easier for Mum (Bub didn’t blink an eye).
I cannot speak more highly of Lakeview as they have been the best choice we made for our boys and us. To know that every day that we are not with them, they are still being loved to the full.
Thank you so much for all you do!”

Tracey – Lilydale

My daughter has been attending Lakeview for the last 2 years and she loves it.
The staff are wonderful!

Amanda – Croydon

“I was extremely nervous to put our son into childcare at such a young age but the team at Lakeview took any hesitation away from the very first visit. We are always greeted with such a warm, friendly and welcoming vibe and I always feel a sense of closeness and family across the establishment. Every time I drop off or pick up the children are having so much fun, doing activities, singing or playing outside. Reubens social and motor skills have both increased greatly since joining the Lakeview family and I often notice him remembering and enjoying songs they have sung together. I know how well he is looked after when I pick him up and I get a full rundown of all the things Reuben enjoyed most about his day, how much he ate, drank and slept etc. These little things are so important to me and are what makes me feel so relieved that we chose Lakeview Kindergarten and Childcare. Thank you to each and every team member for making us feel apart of the family and making childcare such a wonderful experience for our son. Also a very special thanks to Janet in the office for all your help in organising of days and paperwork etc, very much appreciated. With Love.”

Kara, Rhett and Reuben – Lilydale

My daughter has been at Lakeview for the past 3 years. The staff are all beautiful and she is so happy here! We have recently moved further away from the centre but have kept our daughter enrolled purely because of the quality of staff that work here, as driving to Lakeview daily is no longer convenient for us. I highly recommend Lakeview !

Laura – Ringwood

“We first walked into Lakeview Kinder & Childcare over 4 years ago and from the first moment we were warmly welcomed by caring and happy staff that have grown to feel like our extended family. I can’t speak highly enough of the educators that lovingly care for our children as if they were their own, both of my daughters absolutely love going to Lakeview and have developed a number of special bonds with the staff and other children.
My eldest daughter has just completed her Kinder program at Lakeview; Christy and her assistants have done a wonderful job at preparing her for school through their well structured and thought out curriculum.
