Who We Are

KinderLink is a group of 3 preschools located in the Healesville environs in the beautiful Yarra Valley. We have been providing preschool services for more than 20 years, with the number of services expanding over time to accommodate a growing population

The preschools are located in; Badger Creek (near the Healesville Sanctuary), Queens Park (in the recreational parklands of Healesville) and Haig Avenue (within a family service precinct which incorporates a daycare center and maternal health centre).

At KinderLink we believe that your child’s preschool years should enable your child to blossom and grow in a safe, happy nurturing environment. Following the latest teaching framework our fully qualified teaching and support staff encourage children to learn through play and through their interactions with their peers.

We also believe the family is the most important influence in a child’s life and aim to provide a family orientated service where families feel welcomed and included.

Our programs offer a play based curriculum aimed at supporting the development of the ‘whole child’. Our stimulating program provides experiences which extend and encourage the children’s Language, Physical, Cognitive, Social and Emotional, and Creative development. Through their play the children are encouraged to explore and experiment, plan and problem solve, and make choices. Through these interactions, the children develop self esteem; a respect for others and their ideas; an ability to communicate; a sense of belonging and ability to participate in and feel comfortable in a group situation.

KinderLink is a registered association that receives partial government funding, to continue the high level of service currently provided we also rely on fundraising activities.

KinderLink is managed by a Board of parents nominated from the local committee at each of the three centers and is run by a small staff based at the Kinderlink office in Badger Creek.
