Mobile Preschool

Our Mobile Preschool offers a challenging and stimulating educational program. We provide opportunities for children to try new experiences, practice new skills and enjoy playing with their peers.

We believe it's important for children to have a positive early learning experience. These experiences can affect how confidently they transition into 'big school'. We aim to make sure children learn skills to make this change as smoothly as possible.

Our Mobile Preschool is a quality program funded by the NSW Department of Education.

We offer:

  • care and learning experiences for children aged 3 to 5 years
  • qualified, experienced and caring Educators
  • a comprehensive school readiness program
  • activities for the whole family to participate in
  • fee subsidies are available for low income families and for children in the year prior to school entry
