East Bentleigh Child Care Centre has been operating a 4 year old funded kindergarten program since 2011 and is run by a qualified kindergarten teacher. The kindergarten program operates in our Possums room during the standard Victorian school year terms. Long day care is provided in this room from 7am-6pm, Monday to Friday. However, the kindergarten program is delivered within this timeframe for 7½ hours each day between 9am-5pm.

To be eligible for any 4 year old kindergarten program in Victoria children must be offered a minimum of 15 hours of kindergarten per week. The Centre delivers the same program that is delivered at all state-funded kindergartens, which is based on the National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

Our 4 year old kindergarten program is perfect for families who want the benefit of having a structured and engaging kinder program with the flexibility of long day care hours.
