Welcome to Holland Park Kindy
Our centre is nestled amongst beautiful old trees adjoining Mott Park. In this supportive, spacious and well equipped environment, children engage in a year of discovery – playing, sharing and working alongside a consistent group of peers and adults. It is a place where everyone is valued and respected and similarities and differences celebrated.

EXTENDED KINDY HOURS PROGRAM
The extended kindy hours program has been very successful in its first term of implementation, usually with 9-11 children attending. The program is designed to extend on the quality educational program provided during the day with Leanne, providing the children with opportunities to further their understanding about their world and explore their curiosities.
During planning, we include things of interest to the children and things we believe would be beneficial for the children which follow the National Quality Framework standards, however we also leave room for the children’s spontaneous curiosities and interests that regularly come about in an afternoon which we then explore together.
The program runs on a flexible routine which includes afternoon tea, outside play, group/story time and inside play. We provide activities and experiences to the children which will enhance and develop key skills such as social, fine and gross motor, communication and cognitive skills as well as encouraging their imagination and creativity to shine through. It has been amazing to see the children settling into the program and developing positive relationships with their peers and the staff as well as exploring their interests and curiosities about the world and their environment.
