Former Altona West Kindergarten site, 14 Lindwood Avenue, Altona

After servicing children and families of Altona and beyond for 46 years with quality early years education, the committee of management for Altona West Kindergarten decided to close its doors in 2016.

Council recognises and values the important role the Altona West Kindergarten played for families in the community. We invite you to share your stories and memories from your experience with the kindergarten on this page.

Community consultation on the future use of the site


Council is currently undertaking the demolition and removal of the Altona West Kindergarten building. The future use of the site is not yet confirmed and will be determined following a community consultation process.

The land is currently zoned as ‘Public Park and Reserve Zone’. There will be no changes to this zoning and any future use of the land will meet the requirements of this zone, which is purely for community use. The site will not be sold for redevelopment.

The details of the community consultation on the future use of this site are still being determined by Council. We encourage all local residents to get involved in this consultation process around the future use of this space. All updates will be added to this page. To register your interest, please subscribe using your email address in the "stay informed" box at the top right of this page.
