York Street Kindergarten is located at Glenroy West Primary School, on Wurundjeri Land, and is managed by the NSEYC. The kindergarten is implementing the International Baccalaureate (IB) / Primary Years Program (PYP) which supports the continuity of learning for the children as they transition between the Kindergarten and the Primary School Setting. The kindergarten provides a high quality program and was recently assessed as ‘Exceeding‘ the National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education and Care (in mid 2021).
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 programs at York Street Kindergarten are via the Merri-bek City Council. For assistance with the process, call us on 9306 1662, email email@example.com, or for more information about the enrolment process see How to enrol.

The outdoor play space has also been upgraded.
