Altona Meadows Children’s Service

Our service has a warm, family feel.

Our open door policy means that you are welcome to drop in at any time to spend time with your children. You can take as much time as you need to settle your children in when you drop them off in the mornings.

Our approach

At Altona Meadows we promote healthy eating and offer a range of food for lunch. Stir fries, vegetarian meals, homemade pasties, soups and hearty stews are offered to the children. Children with food allergies and provide cultural diets are catered for.

We foster the Reggio Emilia Philosophy at our service and believe the environment is the ‘third teacher’, encouraging exploration and imagination, reflecting the natural world. You will often see our resident chickens running around the yard with the children. All our educators are passionate about their roles and strive to provide the best possible care for your children.

Our services

We are a 58-place service and our:

  • babies room caters for infants 0 to 20 months (allocation for 12 babies);
  • toddler room caters for children 20 months to 3 years (allocation for 16 children); and
  • kindergarten room caters for children 3 years to 6 years (allocation for 26 children).

A funded kinder program runs five hours a day, four days a week by our early childhood teacher.

The Kinder Tick shows we’re an approved provider of a Victorian Government funded and approved kindergarten program. That means our service delivers a play-based learning program, led by a qualified early childhood teacher.

We meet criteria in the funding guidelines set out by the Victorian Government — which means you can have confidence your child’s learning and development will be supported by qualified early childhood teachers and educators through a responsive, evidence-based learning program.
