-Ms. Jamie (Preschool Teacher)
Preparing your child for school is a big step and to help with this we offer 3-year-old kindergarten and 4-year-old kindergarten. We have qualified kindergarten teachers supported by an amazing team; that way we know our children preparing for school are confident and ready to take the next step.
Our teachers go above and beyond to support our children. The children recognize this, and it allows them to be both challenged and encouraged, which teaches them confidence in pursuing their goals.
“Thoroughly impressed by this center. We have had our boys in 5 different Centres over the last 5 years and this is the first to have such a solid kinder program.

My eldest has improved his writing skills a great deal and doesn’t want to come home at the end of the day.”
We believe in exposing children to unique and special activities in order to aid in their development and bring out their talents.
Specialist Activities include Sign Language, Yoga Classes, Dance, Science, Gardening, and more.

“My son has attended Mentone Childcare and Kindergarten since 4 year
old kindergarten. Now in grade 3, he attends before and after school
care as well as the holiday programs. The level of individual care and
commitment shown by the staff is wonderful. There is a genuine passion
for the children’s experience with great activities planned for each session that have an age appropriate learning focus. We love the authentic
approach and the comfort that our son is so well cared for and having a
lot of fun at the same time.”
