Learning is an active process that must involve children’s engagement. This is why play is so important in the early years. Play is essential for its ability to stimulate and integrate a wide range of children’s intellectual, physical, social and creative abilities.


Through play and other opportunities such as routines and everyday experiences, children learn to make sense of and construct ideas about the social and natural world- the people, places, objects and experiences they encounter every day.


Our teaching staff are involved in children’s play and learning, following children’s interests and responding to spontaneous learning opportunities as they arise.


We support children to establish friendships and develop strategies for children to identify feelings and practice peaceful and inclusive ways of resolving conflicts


Families continue to be the child’s most valuable teacher. We believe that a shared approach to children’s learning is essential for children’s learning success.


Dandenong Day Nursery Inc. has been established for over 38 years. We understand the importance of providing the community with early learning options that support family’s individual needs. Our service is proud to provide 3 and 4 year old  funded Kindergarten, Child Care and Family Day Care.
