About Us

GEKA is a funded Early Years Manager and a not-for-profit organisation. We undertake the operational management and employer responsibilities for ten kindergartens within Glen Eira. We are local and available to support our educational teams, children, families and extended community.

We are very proud to be the Approved Provider of our  kindergartens and believe in the importance of working in partnership with educators, families and the GEKA Parent Advisory Group (PAG) to deliver an exceptional early childhood kindergarten experience for all children. All our GEKA kindergartens are operating at or above the National Standard.

GEKA was established in 2011 by parents who were on their kindergarten committee of management within the Glen Eira community. The aim of GEKA was to form a strong, effective, local kindergarten system that is community based; a kindergarten association as a small local Early Years Manager; and the best possible kindergarten framework for our local community.

We respectfully incorporate and reflect upon the diversity within our community and strive to build meaningful links with the local community and the wider world. Everyone comes from their own unique culture. We belong to a community of learners. Respect for diversity and the way of life of others is intrinsic in creating harmony in our early childhood setting. We accept and acknowledge our educational community, and support their active contribution to our program. In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that GEKA Kindergartens are situated on country for which the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation have been traditional owners and custodians for many centuries.
