Our Programs

About Us

Lady Forster Kindergarten is a community-managed kindergarten situated on Boonwurrung Country by Port Phillip Bay in Elwood offering three and four-year old sessional kindergarten and four-year old long day kindergarten programs.

The kindergarten boasts generous rooms and a large, natural outdoor play space with room for children to enjoy a sense of freedom within clear boundaries. Beyond these boundaries we have a flourishing kitchen garden and with our Beach Curriculum, children’s experiences extend into the beach/bush environment surrounding the kindergarten. Together with Elwood PlaySpace adjacent to the kindergarten, children have boundless opportunities to immerse in nature.

Sessional Kindergarten

We offer separate programs for three and four year olds enabling us to provide age-appropriate programs for each age group.

Friday Care

The Friday Care program operates every Friday during term time, with half or full day options.

Extended Hours Kindergarten

The four and five-year-old Extended Hours Kindergarten program operates Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm daily.

Holiday Program

The Holiday Programs run at the end of Terms 1, 2 & 3 and is open to both LFK families and other children from the local community.
