Diamond Valley and Eltham Kindergarten Teachers Association was formed in 1987 to meet the professional development needs of kindergarten teachers working within the Shire of Diamond Valley and Eltham. Changes within council boundaries led to the inclusion of all kindergartens within Nillumbik and Banyule.
We welcome and encourage early childhood educators from all centers across Nillumbik and Banyule and surrounding areas to join us.
To provide professional and personal support systems to reduce the isolation of members.
To facilitate the exchange of ideas and information amongst members and to utilise resources within the community.
To encourage communication between members and the community on information relating to kindergarten teachers, young children and their families.
To act as a medium for the official expression of members of the incorporated association on matters relating to Early Childhood Services and take appropriate action where necessary.
To provide access to a diverse range of materials that can enhance kindergarten programs.
