About the project

We built a kindergarten. It's located on level 5 of the new North Melbourne Primary School — Molesworth Street Campus.

The kindergarten has 2 teaching rooms and offers 66 places for local children. The kindergarten also features outdoor learning areas and play spaces, as well as a kitchen and laundry.

Having the kindergarten and school together may help local children make a smooth transition from pre-school and can also make drop-off time simpler for some families.


In the 2019–20 State Budget, this project shared in the $283 million allocated over 4 years to deliver modular kindergarten facilities and kinders on school sites.

  • The kindergarten is on the top floor of the new campus and includes purpose-built interior and exterior play areas.

    There is a 2.8-metre-high fence around the exterior areas to keep children safe. This is one metre higher than required by our Building Quality Standards Handbook. There are landscaped mounds across the play space, however, these are a safe distance from the boundary and no more than 80cm high.

  • Yes. The kindergarten covers the entire fifth level of the new campus. This means that kindergarten children and primary school students can play safely in their own, custom-built, age-appropriate areas.

    There may be future opportunities for combined activities across the primary school and kindergarten. However, these would be at the discretion of the school principal and kindergarten provider. Parental permission would be sought for any cross-educational activities.

  • During 2023, kindergarten and community users can access the kindergarten via the Molesworth Street entrance. We will also be completing a dedicated laneway entrance on the lower ground level along the southern boundary of the campus.

    Families can get to the kindergarten using 2 access-controlled elevators. This means that only the kindergarten community can access the kindergarten floor.

    CCTV cameras are installed in the lifts and 2 fire escape staircases to provide extra safety and security.
