WELCOME TO ASHWOOD MEMORIAL KINDERGARTEN


A warm and nurturing environment for children.

 

We’re a dedicated, nurturing community kindergarten that has been part of the Ashwood area for more than 45 years.

We provide a warm and encouraging environment for our children to learn, develop and interact through fun and creativity. Since our inception in the 1960s, we have kept the same ideals of family, community and putting children first, something that has enabled our kindergarten to grow and thrive throughout the years.

At Ashwood Memorial Kindergarten (AMK) we provide both three and four-year-old sessional programs and we’re proud of our reputation for preparing our little ones for their journey into primary school. Our focus isn’t just on the children attending the kindergarten, but also on their families and friends. It takes a village to raise a child and the families who are part of the AMK village, are part for life.

We invite you and your family to visit us and:

  • Talk with our outstanding education team
  • Learn about our play based educational programs
  • Explore our newly renovated kindergarten
  • View our magnificent outdoor learning area
  • Meet the community behind the kindergarten

AMK’s 2017/2018 kindergarten programs were rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards, you can read more information about how we have achieved this here.

Our Teachers

Across both our 3 year old and 4 year old programs the teaching staff all have a passion for engaging children in learning and supporting them to develop to their full potential through interactive, play based activities.

The foundation of both the programs is focused on encouraging children to explore the world through inquiring and experiment through play, both indoors and outdoors. Skills learnt at Kindergarten include developing social skills, problem solving skill, reasoning, verbal language, fine and gross motor skills and creativity.
