Nature Kindergarten

Kallista Kindergarten incorporates a Nature Kinder as part of the four-year-old program, (children attend 2 X 6 hours in kinder, and 1 X 3 hours in Nature making up 15 hours a week) and three-year-old program (1 X 3 hours in Nature and 1 X 5 hours in kinder making up 8 hours a week).

With the three-year-old program you can choose both sessions which is the norm, though we do allow families to choose just the Nature Kindergarten program or just the in-Kindergarten program.

Please read Nature Kinder Hand Book

The program will be running in the George Tindale Memorial Gardens, with the support and endorsement of Parks Victoria.
