THE McLeans Road Kindergarten in Bundoora will open its doors in January after an extensive redevelopment, and applications are now open.

The former single-room kindergarten has been replaced with a two-room facility with a new outdoor playground, extending its ability to provide interactive and engaging learning opportunities to young students.

Kids First general manager of early years Di Earp said she was looking forward to welcoming families to the redeveloped McLeans Road Kindergarten in the new year.

“The new building is a wonderful addition to the area,” Ms Earp said.

“The kindergarten backs onto the playground, so it’ll be a great opportunity for excursions.

“Our teachers at McLeans Road Kindergarten are community-focussed and will provide innovative programs based on children’s interests.”

Council’s redevelopment of the McLeans Road facility aims to support the growing population and growing demand for three and four-year-old kindergarten programs across the City of Whittlesea.

It has been delivered with funding from the State Government.

Orientation sessions will be held at McLeans Road Kindergarten later this year (restrictions permitting) to help children become familiar with the centre.

Three and four-year-old kindergarten applications are now open. Visit to apply.
