About the project

We are rebuilding Mount Dandenong Preschool at Mount Dandenong Primary School. It will include a kindergarten room, multipurpose community space, a health consulting room, an office, and an outdoor learning area.

Storms damaged the original kindergarten beyond repair in mid-2021. The kindergarten moved to Olinda Primary School while we planned a new one.

It will continue to operate from Olinda Primary School until the new building is complete.

Permanent location for new kindergarten

We worked closely with Yarra Ranges Council, Mount Dandenong Primary School and Yarra Ranges Kindergartens to find a suitable permanent home for the kindergarten. Together, we decided to move it to Mount Dandenong Primary School.

We’ll build the new kindergarten next to the primary school’s basketball court. This will let us keep the school’s oval, car park and significant trees. It will also provide a clear, separate entrance for the kindergarten.

The basketball court is important to the school. To build the kindergarten, we will need to move the court to the back of the oval. We will also have to reconfigure a school playground area. Unfortunately, the basketball court and parts of the playground cannot be used during construction. We will provide the school community with dates and potential alternatives before this work begins.

After moving the basketball court, we will resurface it so that it can be enjoyed by the school community.
