More Than A Kinder

‘Clyde Street Kindergarten is more than a kinder;  it’s a caring, supportive community which has welcomed our whole family with open arms’

Georgia Jahnke


Engaging Indoor Space

‘Don’t be deceived by the humble facade! The engaging indoor space and the vast, lush outdoor space make CSK one of Thornbury’s best kept secrets.’

Cat Colaci


Learning through play

‘As an Early Childhood Teacher my goal is to be a facilitator of activating each child’s own natural desire to learn using play to achieve their full potential.’

Maria Callegari

Director & Educational Leader


As a not for profit community run kindergarten the fees for Clyde Street Kindergarten are kept as low as possible whilst maintaining the quality of our service.  Once your child is offered a place at Clyde Street Kindergarten an enrolment deposit must be paid to secure their place.  This is refunded against term four fees.

In addition to attending at least one working bee per year each family is required to pay an annual Maintenance and Garden Levy to contribute to the cost of maintaining our facility. Eligible concession card holders will attend kindergarten free of charge in the funded four year old program only. All other fees including the enrolment deposit and maintenance fee are payable in November prior to the year of attendance.
