Barring Djinang Kindergarten offers extended hours kindergarten for children aged three to five.

The kindergarten is co-located on Level 5 of Melbourne's first vertical school with the South Melbourne Primary School. You'll also find a Maternal and Child Health service co-located on-site.

Barring Djinang is not affected by the school's zoned boundaries. Any interested family can register their child without being required to attend the South Melbourne Primary School the following year.

All Council child care and kindergarten centres are staffed by a team of professional early years qualified educators.

Families can choose their arrival/departure times that suits between the hours listed below.

Centre tours

To maintain the health and safety of children and staff in our centres, due to COVID-19, tours will not be conducted until further notice. However, if you are offered a place for 2021, next steps will be discussed with families when the offer is made.


Families provide food for their child. This should include morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.

Parent Groups

Each Council Early Childhood Education and Care centre has a Parent Group (PAG). To join the Barring Djinang PG, contact the kindergarten teacher.

Public holidays

Barring Djinang Kindergarten is closed on all public holidays, and over the Christmas and New Year period.

Families are not charged if a service is closed due to COVID-19.
