Preschool Centre

Together we will provide a positive, happy, stimulating and secure environment for your child to 'explore, engage and experience' - develop and learn.


Starting Preschool (SA Govt site, opens in a new window) is a big step in your child's life - making new friends - sharing toys and ideas - coping with frustrations and finding out and remembering where things are.


These are some of the skills they will learn during their time at Preschool.
