It was that time of year again when an enthusiastic group of MCCCC educators participated in Melbourne City Mission’s Sleep at the G. Sleep at the G is now in its seventh year and raises much needed funds for Melbourne City Mission, who support more than 5,000 people experiencing homelessness a week. This year, Melbourne City Mission was also hoping to raise funds to support their newly opened crisis accommodation centre for at-risk young people, Frontyard.
North West Brunswick
North West Brunswick Kindergarten (NWBK) first opened its doors in 1954. From January 2021, NWBK will be under the management of Moreland Community Child Care Centres (MCCCC). MCCCC is coordinated by one Director, Gillian Barclay, who oversees the operations and strategic direction of the service.
Located in Brunswick, NWBK is nestled within a quiet suburban street. The classrooms have high ceilings and large windows, which provide natural light and lead directly out to the children’s garden. The garden comprises of well-established trees, shrubs and plants, and ‘messy play’ delights such as rocks, logs, dirt, sand and water.
NWBK staff hold a variety of early childhood qualifications, offering a wealth of diverse knowledge and lived experiences.
Our aim is to build innovative and collaborative early childhood education and care programs that are fun, positive and harmonious. We build strong, respectful partnerships with families and our local community.
Italian Kindergarten at NWBK is not just an Italian class; it is a full 15-hour bilingual preschool program.
Our Italian Kindergarten program follows the national curriculum framework, embedding language learning through play, Italian cultural traditions and language. Our Italian Kindergarten is open to all children eligible for preschool and we welcome non-Italian families as well as those with Italian heritage. The teacher for Italian Kindergarten is a qualified early childhood teacher and fluent Italian speaker. The Italian program is a designated bilingual program under the Early Childhood Languages Program and has an additional Language Teacher supporting the program.
North West Brunswick Kindergarten also offers a weekly, single session Italian Intro 3-Year-Old kindergarten program.
