Imagination Garden Geelong

We believe children benefit most from natural environments, where they can freely explore, be inquisitive and discover the world they live in.

We are Imagination Garden, Kindergarten and Childcare, Geelong

Our unique community includes families, educators, children and our local environment. We are committed to creating a sense of belonging for everyone, where people feel comfortable, supported and at ease with parenting and family life.

We respect that every child learns differently & at their own pace. We foster a nurturing environment with a focus on social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.

Our role is to support families. Together, we strive to give children the tools & self-confidence to be independent, lifelong learners.

Part of the village that raises our children

Our Values

We nurture a sense of belonging in an open environment where children are given the space to grow, explore and discover the joy of being an individual in our community.

We believe in the village. With a cohesive and open-minded approach to education, we can all provide our children with the continuity of care they deserve.

We will grow with you. Every day in our garden we find inspiration and opportunity, learning to accept our diverse partnership with nature.
