3 Year Olds – Wombats
New to Elonera in 2022 is the Wombats group. The group has an emphasis on having fun while learning to share and co-operate with each other in a happy, safe, relaxed, well structured educational environment. This allows each child the time, space and support to experience and develop in their own individual way. The program is developed around each child’s individual needs as well as stimulating and encouraging a ‘hands-on’ environment. This program helps develop their everyday skills and is as a wonderful transition to 4 year old kindergarten.
We are proud to offer two 3 year old kindergarten groups. Please click here to find out more about our Kangaroos group, which takes place over two half day sessions (3 hours each).
FRIDAYS: 8.45am – 1.45pm
Fees are $180 per term and include all excursions and incursions. Excursions and incursions alter each year as we tailor them to the interests of the children.
The enrolments for 3 year old kinder at Elonera are processed by the City of Kingston’s Central Enrolment Scheme. They open on Saturday, May 1, 2021. For further information please contact the City of Kingston on 1300 653 356.

Our educators are all nurturing professionals who provide a secure environment for your child to enjoy and grow in, with qualified Early Childhood teachers co-ordinating both the 3yo and 4yo groups. Please find our Statement of Philosophy here.
At Elonera we practice the principles of The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. For more details, please read here. The Victorian Framework uses five outcomes to describe the key elements of children’s learning and development. These are:
Identity. Children have a strong sense of identity.
Community. Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
Wellbeing. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
Learning. Children are confident and involved learners.
Communication. Children are effective communicators.
Brilliant kinder. Can’t compliment the teachers and assistants enough. And my boys loved running around the spacious grounds, a great way to burn energy.

Best thing I ever did was send my son to Elonera. So much better than doing 4 year old kinder in a day care setting. Grounds and teachers are amazing. The best experience!
