Kindalin Frenchs Forest spreads generously across two levels with indoor and outdoor areas, providing children with a modern yet natural space to explore and grow. Our Exclusive Preschool Program starts from an early age and continues until the transition to Kindergarten.

Inside the centre, we have four bright, airy rooms that each focus on children of different ages. Downstairs we provide three rooms for younger age groups, each equipped with the tools and resources to spark young imaginations. A writing centre, a home corner, a construction centre, and quiet areas for stories and reading are just a few.

The upstairs space provides a large room with three separate spaces dedicated to our Preschool-aged children, The Wonderful Wombats. Indoor learning spaces with an indoor jungle room and a natural outdoor area make you feel like you are part of a forest. All have many nooks for quiet play, active explorations and small group work.

Our dedicated team of long-term staff are proudly local to Frenchs Forest and extensively involved in the community. We provide a family-feel environment with knowledge and experience that highlights our passion for children’s development, growth and school readiness.

“I am passionate about filling the lives of little ones with happiness and laughter and doing this through engaging in the arts, including music, dance and dramatic play.”

Notes from Frenchs Forest parents

We can’t say ‘Thank you’ enough to Miss Lauren and the rest of the educators in the Possum room. We have seen such a big change in Summer over the past few months and its all thanks to the amazing job the Kindalin team does. When we moved Summer to Kindalin from her previous centre, we saw such an improvement with her in the first week. She was happy to be dropped off in the mornings, and she was bright and bubbly when we picked her up in the evenings, full of imagination and new experiences. We knew straight away that we made the right decision in moving her, and its definitely due to the love and attention she gets while at the centre.

Even the other day when we were called and told Summer had developed a fever, we didn’t feel panicked because we knew she was in good hands and well taken care of. Thanks again to Miss Lauren and the rest of the team in the Playful Possums Room.

I just wanted to stop and take an emotional minute to write and send the warmest of thanks to the beautiful team at Kindalin in Frenchs Forest. After 7+ years our time as part of the Kindalin family is coming to an end, with our youngest daughter Talia starting school in 2018.

The centre has provided such warmth to my daughters and the staff have been so nurturing and encouraging over the years, not to mention so much fun! My girls were always super excited to go to Kindalin each day and I had such peace of mind knowing they were happy and in a safe and caring environment whilst I was at work.

To Ashlee, Kelly and all the teachers – you have been such a huge part of our lives (our girls started at Kindalin prior to turning one!) and you have truly helped shape Talia and our now 8 year old daughter Chloe into the most wonderful little humans.

Thank you for all that you do! Thank you for the countless nappy changes and helping with toilet training, thank you for all the wonderful concert and events including Mother’s Day and Father’s Day concerts, the Christmas parties and the graduation ceremony before starting school, thank you for teaching them creative arts and all the messy painting we never like doing at home(!), thank you for encouraging imaginary play, thank you for sharing the importance and love of books, thank you for guiding them to become ready for the transition to big school! 

Thank you for supporting myself and my husband with this amazing journey called parenthood! 

Kindalin Frenchs Forest is part of our family and we will miss you all so much – THANK YOU!


I’m not sure where to begin. Kindalin can be considered a second family to us. As parents we expect only the best for our children and Kindalin as never disappointed. This centre has shaped our children in so many ways. Their care, attention to detail, experience, fun loving personalities and joy to work with little people is obvious each day when I drop the kids off. There are more times than I can count that our children would rather stay and play/learn a little longer. Kindalin will always hold a special place in our family and we can’t thank you enough for all what you do.

You guys will surely be missed 🙁
