Buddies Early Learning


Buddies is dedicated to creating a home like environment that is welcoming and warm. We place a strong emphasis on partnerships with families and the surrounding community. Each family’s cultural and linguistic diversity is embraced and acknowledged, with the Jewish culture in particular embedded into the program. Buddies operate sustainable centres and include these practices into the childrens’ daily activities to make them more informed and responsible citizens.

In addition to our rich and varied curriculum we provide regular excursions, music, yoga, Hebrew and sport programs delivered by qualified specialist teachers as part of our educational programming.

Our teachers are committed to ongoing learning and professional development and are respected for their individual strengths and abilities which they bring to our team.


Our centre at 143 Jasper Rd Bentleigh has been providing kindergarten programs for 3 and 4 year olds since 2008 in 2 separate classrooms with each having adjoining adventure play grounds. We have recently upgraded our outdoor play spaces to incorporate a more natural environment and remodelled our entrance foyer to improve security and upgrade information displays.

Our centre at 181 Grange Rd Glenhuntly has been designed with superior quality in mind. Our 4 rooms from 1 to 5 years of age are light and airy, modern and spacious and incorporate wonderful educational spaces and opportunities inside coupled with fabulous outdoor environments to challenge and stimulate the interest of all the children.


At Buddies everything we do from an educational, social and wellbeing point of view incorporates the elements of learning, community, environment and culture.

These are essential for each individual child to excel and achieve their full potential as well as develop an understanding of responsibility to each other, their families and their community.
