About Bellevue Kindergarten

Bellevue Kindergarten offers two 3-year-old programs and two 4-year-old programs with sessions running simultaneously. 

The kindergarten's philosophy values play based learning and development through active exploration and participation. Our 3 and 4-year-old programs offer specialist music, in addition to an Italian language program and sport specialist for our 4-year-old children. The children engage in many incursions and excursions. 

Parents are encouraged to participate to the Kindergarten experience and education as many opportunities are provided throughout the year.
