Community Kindy The Mount, part of the BestStart family offers both sessional and full day early education for 2-5 year olds. We have a small, close team of energetic, enthusiastic and qualified staff who know how to meet the needs of your child.

We provide a fun, relaxed environment which is safe, happy and stimulating for children. Children can explore their environment through a balance of teacher directed and self-initiated discovery which focuses on the interests and development of the individual.

Our 4 year olds are offered a Be School Ready initiative that prepares them with all the skills needed for school. This includes an individual portfolio of learning and development outlining their learning journey with us.

Our sessions run from 8am to 12pm and 12.30pm to 4.30pm.

Parent Feedback:

Thank you so much for all you have done for Spence over the last 2½ years. We have loved seeing him thrive from a shy reserved little boy into a confident young man with a love of sports, construction and friends. We are so sad to say goodbye but wish everyone all the best for 2018″

“Thank you for everything!  Enrolling Shane with Mount Kindy was the best thing I could’ve done for both him and I.  Not only have you all been so wonderfully supportive of me as a parent but you have helped shape my son into the confident, independent, happy little man that he is today.  The difference in Shane’s learning abilities, vocabulary, experiences, stories and development is huge – and that’s thanks to you.  You really are the perfect example of the perfect kindy and I am so grateful that we got to experience that.  I wish we could take everyone and everything with us.  Shane has formed such special friendships and I have too.  We will both miss you all.  We love you Mount Kindy!”

“Thank you so much for everything you have done for us all over this year. We feel very lucky that our children have had such an amazing time at Community Kindy Mount. They’ve felt loved, cared for and challenged to grow in all the things that they’ve done. The opportunities that you have offered them have helped shape them to who they are already. We know that their time with you has prepared them for school, given them independence and taught them how to work and be considerate of others. The memories we have are special.”

“You are all amazing teachers, we really appreciate how you have cared for our daughter, taken an interest in her life and interests and have fostered and brought out the best in her. She has loved kindy and we are sad to see her leave her little happy place with all her little friends.”

“Thank you all so much for all of the time, effort, care and energy you have put in over the years with Sam and Toby. Community Kindy Mount is an outstanding EC centre and we feel very fortunate to have been a part of the community. You have truly wonderful staff who are just amazing with the kids.”

“We think you are all amazing and our girls are just so happy with you and we are always amazed at the cool creations they end up bringing home. We rave about you guys to our friends and are just so thankful to have found such a great kindy.”

“Jackson loves coming to kindy and it has been lovely to see him growing in confidence and skills this year. He is learning so much but most importantly he feels happy, safe and secure and that is all down to his wonderful teachers.”

“Thank you so very much for all the care, love and attention that has been shown to Paige over the last few years! Every day has been joyous for her and that is an absolute credit to you all. We think you all do such an amazing job!!”

“We are so thankful for the wonderful care you’ve taken of Sienna and Bo over the last 2.5 years. I know Sienna in particular is going to miss you all immensely! We couldn’t have survived without you!”
