Preschool is such an exciting, new adventure for your child.

They are learning how to function in a new environment away form home and familiar others. Children start learning how to manage new routines, participate as part of a group and form relationships with teachers and other children. They begin to build trust, an important skill for all future learning.

Our Preschool session times run from 8.30am to 3.00pm according to a group roster (see below). Sessions are structured to help the children settle in for the day and include various learning and play activities with an aim to help them develop and grow.

The pre-school is open to all families and we invite you to call and make a time to come and visit us during a kindy session.
