St John the Baptist Kindergarten is located in Sandringham, offering sessional Three- and Four-year-old kinder programs.
St Johns is a parent run committee kindergarten, we pride ourselves on having strong relationships with families and the community that extends beyond the kinder grounds. Our kinder is rated “Exceeding” the National Quality Standards.

 

Our program is guided by the knowledge that children thrive in a stimulating environment where they have ownership and feel a sense of belonging and joy. Our program is play-based and derived from holistic approaches and the National Quality Standards (NQS) and Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF). We appreciate that each child learns differently and value their individuality and unique talents. We have high expectations of the children’s learning capabilities and enjoy watching them grow and learn at their own pace. Our kindergarten is set in an old church offering space and character which complements its planned learning environment. Nature Play is encouraged and fostered through regular visits to local bushland and our sustainability focus at kinder.
