At Geelong West Kindergarten, we offer small Pre-kinder classes of either 6 or 7 hours per week. In 2022 there are the options of between 5 and 9.5 hours per week, all led by a university qualified early childhood teacher and partly subsided by the Vic Government.Find out more

The decision for the building of a Free Kindergarten to cater for the needs of Geelong West residents came about in 1921 when Messrs Hitchcock, Lewis, Shore and Wighton purchased four blocks of land in O’Connell Street for 173 pounds.
While there are still children actively learning through play in the original playroom, currently the Butterfly Room, there are also additional rooms after extensions in the 1980s and an expansion of the Rainbow Room in 2013.
We are looking forward to celebrating a wonderful 100 year history in 2022!
