PARED Victoria is delighted to announce that a kindergarten for 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds will open on the Harkaway Hills College site in 2022.
Child-centred and with a vision to support family values Harkaway Hills Kindergarten promises to be a warm and inviting early learning centre.
Harkaway Hills College Principal, Mary Broadsmith said that the construction of the early learning centre has been much anticipated.
‘This is an exciting moment for PARED education in Melbourne. Children will now be able to benefit from our unique education model focused on the development of the whole person from the age of 3 until they graduate in Grade 12,’ she said.
‘We are honoured that we are going to be sharing in this journey with the families in our local community.’
The construction phase will begin with an official soil turning by Luke Donellan MP on Friday 14 May, with the building scheduled for completion in the final quarter of 2021.
Mrs Broadsmith said the school community is eagerly anticipating the addition of the early learning centre.
‘The families of Harkaway Hills College have been delighted with the news that their children can now experience the excellence of our educational model in their early years,’ she said.
Harkaway Hills College is an independent school with a Catholic ethos located in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
The approach to education at the Harkaway Hills Kindergarten is rooted in the belief that children benefit most when there is harmony between their two major learning environments: home and school.
The PARED model of education also encourages parents to be active participants in all aspects of their child’s development by supporting parents in their parenting role through an ongoing programme of personal enrichment activities.
Harkaway Hills Kindergarten will seek to lay a strong foundation for young learners to develop strong character and progress in virtue as they prepare to enter primary school.
Harkaway Hills College is currently accepting expressions of interest for the kindergarten.
“We are very much looking forward to welcoming more families into our growing school community,” Mrs Broadsmith said.
