Kindergarten in Doncaster East


We would like to advise that, in line with the school closures in Victoria, Gum Nut Gully Preschool is currently closed. The Committee of Management, in consultation with staff, have made a unanimous decision to close the centre in an attempt to help stop the spread of Covid-19 within our community.

At this point in time the Department of Education and Training have not made a decision about when term 2 will commence, and will await further direction from Victoria’s Chief Health Officer.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and support of our preschool during this unprecedented event. 

We wish everyone a safe and healthy break and we look forward to seeing all our wonderful friends and families again soon.

Kindergarten in Doncaster East

Welcome to Gum Nut Gully Pre-School. Our staff and families believe that we are a very special community-based preschool, embracing the bush setting location, bordered by Mullum Mullum Linear Park and Currawong Park.

Since 1987, Gum Nut Gully Pre-School has been providing a high-quality educational program to local families. We believe children need an environment that is calm, physically safe and emotionally secure to assist and encourage the children to develop a love of learning for life.

With an emphasis on learning through play, our aim has been, and still is, to meet the needs of each child at both an individual and the group level.

Gum Nut Gully Pre-School offers 3 and 4 year old early learning programs incorporating Bush Kinder that provide children with an educational learning environment especially designed for their preschool age group.
