Families and Community

A key influence of children’s future success is the experience of positive relationships within their family and community in the early childhood years.  A community kindergarten is a unique space that brings children and their families together.  Hurlingham excels at building a wonderful sense of belonging that connects our children and families with each other  to create strong, lasting relationships that continue on into local schools and beyond.  Creating a sense of place also fosters belonging  and we spend time with the children exploring our local area, visiting the parks and gardens and introducing children to school life as we visit local schools and they, in turn, spend time with us, creating a sense of anticipation for what lies ahead.

We have particularly strong relationships with our main feeder schools, Gardenvale and St Finbar’s. We do have children that transition to other local schools as well including Brighton Primary, St James, Bentleigh West and other independent schools. When it comes to transitioning from 4yr old kinder to Prep, we assist this process through numerous discussions and sharing of information with all schools so that every child feels nurtured and supported. 

Families are a child’s first teacher so we welcome every opportunity to share that learning experience at Hurlingham. 

Family members are encouraged to participate through ‘kinder duty’ where you can engage with the children in the day’s activities and see first-hand the dynamics of the group.

Many families come in to share an interesting job, or a wonderful skill such as cooking, gardening, painting, knitting, playing of an instrument.

Working bees are another great opportunity for the kinder community to come together to keep our facilities looking fabulous but also a chance to get know other parents.

There are also many social activities throughout the year (when we are “Covid-Normal”) such as picnics, dinners, plays in the park to name just a few.

We encourage any and all family involvement and are always open to other suggestions
