Welcome to Ness Reserve Pre-School.  
We are a community run kindergarten which is ideally located close to the Diamond Creek shops, local primary school and parklands.  We offer a supportive, positive and stimulating educational program for 3-5 year old children which is run by dedicated and experienced teachers and educators.

We see children as capable, knowledgeable and naturally inspired learners and offer a play-based program to extend on their knowledge, interests and development.  We strive to develop close relationships with families and to create ties within the local community. 

We love Ness because...

"We looked at several kinders in the area, and found that Ness Reserve Preschool just felt the mostly homely and natural when we went through".

—  Andrew, Parent

Enrolments for our 2025 and 2026 programs open 1st March

Our Program

Children learn best through play and at Ness we focus on lots of sensory experiences and supporting social and emotional development.

Our Team

At Ness we have an amazing team of educators passionate about making sure children's time at preschool is special and memorable.


All kinder enrolments are now processed through the Nillumbik Council.

Ness Reserve Pre-School is committed to child safety.  Our children are made to feel safe, happy and empowered, and we 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.


We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation, as the traditional owners and custodians of the land that we meet, work and play on at Ness Reserve Pre School.  We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future and commit to working in partnership together as we strive to embed Indigenous perspectives within our curriculum.


Ness Reserve Pre-School offers a funded kindergarten program for three and four year old children which complies with government guidelines and the National Qualify Framework and is lead by a qualified kindergarten teacher.
