Construction has started on a $4.5 million state-of-the-art kindergarten on McLeans Road in Bundoora.
The City of Whittlesea is rebuilding the facility to include two modern kindergarten rooms, which will cater for up to 66 pre-schoolers; an increase of more than 30 three and four-year-old kindergarten places.
Located next to the recently-redeveloped Norris Bank Reserve, the kindergarten will also feature a multipurpose room for allied health service providers and community groups to participate in programmed activities and training opportunities.
Construction is expected to be complete in late 2021, ready for the 2022 school year.
Kindergarten applications will open on 1 February 2021 for three-year-olds wanting to attend in 2022. Four-year-old kindergarten applications for 2022, are already open. To apply, visit whittlesea.vic.gov.au/kinder
The redevelopment of McLeans Road Kindergarten is supported by the Victorian Government.
