Nar Nar Goon Kindergarten

13 Main Street, Nar Nar Goon, VIC 3812

Where children thrive in a nurturing and stimulating environment!

Nar Nar Goon Kindergarten offers a varied and innovative program within a friendly, secure environment. Using a play based program we support each child’s individual development and self-esteem, promote social and communication skills and encourage natural curiosity and a desire to learn.

We provide 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs, where we use unstructured play materials such as clay, paint, mud, water, sand, blocks and many loose parts for children to develop a positive attitude towards learning and exploring.

At Nar Nar Goon Kindergarten, we value the outdoor environment and promote care and respect for nature. We believe that children benefit from experiencing seasonal changes and the opportunity to play in a garden. In our activities, we emphasize the use of natural and recycled materials, wise water usage, worm farming, vegetable gardening, and sense of responsibility for all living things.

Our Philosophy

We acknowledge the People of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the lands on which we play and learn.

We believe that every child is capable, resourceful, and able to contribute to his or her own learning.

We believe that every child deserves high quality education and care in a safe and supportive environment. We commit to take every reasonable precaution to protect children from harm and any hazard likely to cause injury.

We believe in the value of parents as partners in the education of their children and we seek ways in which we can connect with parents and the diverse community of which we are a part.

We work within the National & State Early Years Learning & Development Frameworks, Standards Regulations and Early Childhood Code of Ethics.

We believe that play is crucial to the development of children. Learning through play allows children to explore, experience, communicate, observe, reflect, create, collaborate, cooperate, problem-solve and imagine. We understand that children learn mathematical and literacy concepts through meaningful play.

We acknowledge that healthy children learn better. Therefore, we promote positive health and wellbeing practices and learning throughout our curriculum. Covering the areas of: Mental health & Wellbeing, Tobacco Control, Healthy Eating & Oral Health, Safe Environments, and Physical Activity.
