At Astra Early Learning, we understand that your child's kindergarten year is an important one. 

Our 4 year old kindergarten program is a Government recognised, funded kindergarten program. We have a qualified Early Childhood Kindergarten Teacher who runs our kindergarten and school readiness program Monday to Friday between 8 am and 4 pm. 

Our kindergarten program Integrated into our lang daycare program provides families with more flexibility as there are no set days or times you are required to attend, and children receive langer uninterrupted learning periods. However, the Victorian Government does recommend that each child attends a minimum of 15 hours of kindergarten per week in the year before school.
