The St Michael’s Early Learning Centre, Margaret Thomas House is conveniently located on our Kindergarten to Year 12 campus in St Kilda.
We believe children are extraordinarily curious, creative and capable, and we respect and value each child’s ideas and opinions.
Our Early Learning educators observe, listen and research alongside the child, encouraging each one to be inquirers, to wonder and pose questions.
A Kindergarten is a place where you learn to be kind. I love learning with my friends and my teachers. I feel happy here.Theo (4 Year Old Kindergarten student)
With a commitment to the values of the Reggio Emilia Educational Project, our learning is inquiry-driven. We teach for understanding, believing that learning is a social experience and that knowledge is constructed with others and the environment.
Our values of Dignity, Respect, Care and Compassion are central to learning, and our Kindergarten learners become aware of these values through exploring and developing positive relationships and a strong sense of belonging.
I like playing with my friends, we share our toys and do drawings.Levon (3 Year Old Kindergarten student)
Our Kindergarten is a full-time Program from 8.40am to 3.15pm and is approved for Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
