McLeans Road Kindergarten Redevelopment

McLeans Road Kindergarten is now closed for redevelopment and will reopen in 2022.

McLeans Road Kindergarten, at 151 McLeans Road in Bundoora, was built in 1977 and accommodated only 30 children. The existing centre will be rebuilt with a new two-room (66 place) kindergarten facility on the same site for operation by the 2022 school year. 

Project timelines

To ensure the new facility is ready for the 2022 school year, the facility will need to be closed throughout term 4 of 2020 and all of 2021.

  • Construction began in  term 4, 2020
  • Expected completion: late 2021 ready for operations January 2022.
