Gowrie offers two quality early learning services in Docklands
Gowrie has a proud history of supporting families with high quality childcare and kindergarten services in Docklands. Gowrie is known for the rich learning experiences and unique outdoor space at The Harbour offering long day care and integrated kindergarten to families who live or work locally. We’re looking forward to opening our second site in January 2021, partnering with the new Docklands Primary School where our new kindergarten will be located. Gowrie Docklands Kindergarten will offer sessional and integrated kindergarten. Children in Docklands deserve the best quality early education and care and we look forward to providing this to even more families for many years to come.
The period from birth to the time children begin formal schooling is fundamental to lifelong learning. Gowrie’s programs promote children’s inherent curiosity and wonder. We view each child as rich in potential, capable and competent. We recognise that all children and families have the ability to succeed and we support inclusion and opportunities for all.
Gowrie @ The Harbour
Our long-standing and highly respected service for families who live or work in Docklands. At 1 Seafarer Lane we continue to offer long day care programs for children aged six weeks to five years and an integrated kindergarten program for three and four-year-olds.
We offer progressive and flexible indoor/outdoor programs. The innovative design of the garden among the high towers of Docklands makes for a special place for children. We believe in being inclusive and approachable and are proud of our Exceeding rating.
Gowrie Docklands Kindergarten
Brand new and co-located with the much anticipated Docklands Primary School at 259 Footscray Road. We offer both sessional kindergarten (part day for four-year-olds during term time) and integrated kindergarten (full day for three or four-year-olds for 50 weeks of the year). Enrolments are flexible and there are spaces for 66 children across two rooms.
The unique design provides opportunity for community building through shared spaces and close connections with the Docklands Primary School as well as the wider community.
