What We Offer
Tarralla Kindergarten is a not for profit community Kindergarten, established on 20th September 1975.
Tarralla Kindergarten takes it’s name from the Wurundjeri name of the creek which flows nearby – “Tarralla” means “walking quickly”.
We believe children learn through play and that through play our children are “walking quickly” on their road to being life-long learners.
Our Committment to Child Safety
Tarralla Kindergarten is committed to child safety. We want children to be safe, happy and empowered and have zero tolerance of child abuse. We understand our legal and moral obligations to treat all concerns seriously and to report allegations and concerns about a child/ren’s safety and wellbeing to authorities.
We are committed to the cultural safety of all children including Aboriginal children, children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children with a disability.

Acknowledgment of Country
Tarralla Kindergarten acknowledges the First Nations people of the land on which we learn and play, the Wurundjeri People of Kulin Nation. We pay respect to all ancestors, elders and children. We recognise the tradition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as knowledge-sharers and early educators within our community.
