Patricia Smith Kindergarten has been providing Early Childhood Education for Children in Shepparton, for 40 years making it a great place for children to learn, laugh and grow!

Our program lays the foundation for quality education. We value the children’s uniqueness and celebrate their strengths and life experiences that shape who they are.

In conjunction with the child, their families and our educators we plan a program that is rich in opportunity and inquiry. Our ability to see the children as capable individuals allows us to build on their existing skills to foster positive outcomes and learning development. Every interaction we have is positive and respectful.

We know the value of seeing the children as proficient learners who can guide their own leaning; this knowledge allows us to plan a high quality flexible program.

We bring the inside out every day and the children have a lot of opportunity to lead the direction of the day.

We acknowledge all aspects of the day hold learning opportunities, morning greeting, routine times, mealtimes with peers and we value these educational moments with the children.

All of our educators hold qualifications ranging from Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education, Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Bachelor of Early Childhood.

  • Provide environments that are nurturing, where play is central to a child’s learning and development, and supports their physical, emotional and social wellbeing.
    Ensure respectful relationships between educators, children, families and the wider community are developed and nurtured and diversity in all is acknowledged and celebrated.
  • Acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners of our land, and provide opportunities for children and families to be immersed in sustainable practices which promote respect for the natural world, including animals, the land, and food sources.
