Welcome to St Kilda and Balaclava Kindergarten (SKBK).
SKBK is a community-run Kindergarten that has served families of St Kilda and Balaclava since we first opened our doors on Blanche Street in 1911, and from our current location since 1916.
SKBK provides a service that supports and educates children and aims to meet the needs of our community. We offer a play-based program to three- to five-year-old children in a rich and stimulating learning environment. Our children are supported to explore and discover; who they are, their capabilities and their role in our changing world.
SKBK doesn’t just have a sense of community, we exist because of it. We thrive on the development of positive community relationships and embrace and celebrate the diverse linguistic and cultural input our families provide. Through working bees, excursions, in-services and networking with local organisations, our unique and vibrant community is the cornerstone of SKBK.
SKBK is actively involved in nurturing our immediate environment and in taking steps to promote environmental awareness and sustainable practices. Consideration for the natural world is a part of everything we do.
We offer long-day kindergarten programs for three- to four-year-old children for 48 weeks of the year.
St Kilda Balaclava Kindergarten has been ranked Exceeding by ACECQA. See our our scorecard here on their website site here.
We hope you enjoy discovering all SKBK has to offer.
