Nelson Bay Preschool

Nelson Bay Preschool operates 49 weeks of the year, only closing for a 3 week period over the Christmas break.

Our operating hours are from 8:00am until 4:00pm and we operate Monday to Friday. Our service can cater for up to 25 children per day and specialises in children aged 3 years until their commencement at school.
Nelson Bay Preschool is owned and operated by Ray and Jan Slade. We purchased the Preschool in August 2010 and since taking ownership have made a number of changes and improvements to the centre. We strive for excellence in the care that we give your children, working with each child as an individual to allow them the opportunity to meet their full potential, whatever that may be.
Ray and Jan both have nursing and childcare qualifications and have managed a variety of childcare services for other organisations. Jan also has qualifications in Management and Workplace Assessment and Training.
We base our Philosophy on earning respect, honesty, and valuing the diversity that each staff member and family brings to the Centre.
We acess ongoing training for staff to ensure that they offer your child the current best practices in childcare.
We love feedback and welcome suggestions made by children, families, staff, or community members. The Centre has an open door policy and please feel free to come along, have a look, and meet the staff.
We operate under the National Quality Framework and Standards for Early Childhood Education and Care and School Age Care. The Early Years Learning Framework informs the development of a program for each child that enhances their learning and development.
