Thornbury Kindergarten


We are a well established community-run kindergarten in Thornbury, a popular northern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. The Kindergarten is an incorporation run by a committee of volunteer parents, and it is owned by the Darebin Council. Our staff are committed and experienced, and they strive to provide a rich, stimulating, safe and fun learning environment.

We currently run three 4-year-old groups and two 3-year-old groups. In 2012 we expanded our program with the opening of a new kinder room. This year we are running a bush kinder session for one of our 4 year old groups.  To find out more or to arrange a tour, please call 9484 1095 or email
