Bethal Primary School Kindergarten

Bethal Kindergarten is located on the grounds of Bethal Primary School, on Wurundjeri land, and is managed by the NSEYC.

Our purpose is to Love a Life of Learning and Living. Our values are Trust, Respect, Relationships and Curiosity, and these values inform everything we do. We specialise in delivering high-quality early learning programs in close partnership with families, schools and the broader community, as we know this has enormous benefits for children’s lifelong learning. Our educational philosophy includes a focus on authentic relationships to support individual children’s wellbeing and development, with a strong emphasis on learning through play in nature.

Enrolments for the 3 and 4-year-old program at Bethal Kindergarten are via the Hume City Council. For assistance with the process, call us on 9306 1662, email, or for more information about the enrolment process see How to enrol.

Facilities and services

The kindergarten is based within the school grounds at Bethal Primary School. The kindergarten is being upgraded to improve the indoor and outdoor learning spaces and create an additional room to support the delivery of 3-year-old programs through the Victorian government’s Building Blocks initiative, as part of our ongoing efforts to provide the very best early learning opportunities for children in Meadow Heights and all of the communities we work within.

The kindergarten offers programs for 3-year-old and 4-year-old children. All programs are for 15 hours per week and are FREE (no cost to families).

The timetable for 2024 is as follows:

  • 3-year-old program: Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays, 8.30am to 1.30pm
  • 4-year-old program: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 8.30am to 1.30pm (children attend for THREE of these days only)
