Providing children with opportunities to explore, imagine, play and discover their world!

At Pakenham Kindergarten, we run 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs, where your child will learn, play, explore and have fun. We provide a play based program, where children have a strong sense of wellbeing, can make new discoveries, accept challenges and take risks.

Kindergarten is a very exciting time for the children and their families and we aim for all to have very happy memories of their time at Pakenham Kindergarten.
