Froebel Fitzroy North caters for 69 children from 6 months to 5 years; a Kindergarten Program is fully integrated into our curriculum on 5 days every week.

Our awe-inspiring centre has been rated by the Department of Education and Training at Exceeding the National Quality Standard

A 5 metre giant slide that whizzes the older children (and their parents if they are daring enough!) from the building into the playground, a two-level play pod, reading nooks, a ‘Little Scientists’ corner, a kitchen theatre – these are just some of the features that make the centre a magical place for children that facilitates learning opportunities on many different levels – playful language learning, science & maths, health & nutrition, nature experiences & appropriate risk-taking. Our enthusiastic team of four qualified early childhood teachers, highly-qualified and experienced early childhood educators and a chef strive to create the best possible early learning and care environment for your children.

At Froebel Fitzroy North, we are offering an immersive language learning program with German as a second community language

We partner with the Deutsche Schule Melbourne, an independent German English Bilingual School, located on the same campus in Fitzroy North. Our partnership provides a continuum to our philosophy of early bilingual immersion learning. Deutsche Schule Melbourne’s concept is based on the Canadian “Early Immersion Program” for bilingual schools. Please visit their website for further information and the school's enrolment procedures.
