Barriburn Preschool

​A place of creativity, wonder and discovery!

At Barriburn Preschool we run 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs. We have a huge playground, large established trees and garden, and a friendly, caring and relaxed atmosphere. We pride ourselves on being a small and inclusive community, with one group of children in the 3 year old group, and one group of children in the 4 year old group.

Our play-based learning programs are responsive to each child, are meaningful, and build on their interests, cultures, strengths and knowledge. We provide an environment that is safe and supportive, with a rich and diverse range of experiences that promote children’s learning and development.

Facilities and Services

    We have large indoor and outdoor play spaces, including a huge playground and garden, to give the children plenty of room to move and explore.

    Our curriculum supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative learning. We also celebrate multiculturalism and include a variety of cultural events throughout the year.

    Excursions and Incursions are part of our program, to enhance children’s understanding and feel like a part of the community.

    At Barriburn Preschool, we are very conscious of keeping our staff and children safe in the sun; therefore we are official participants in the SunSmart program.

    At Barriburn Preschool, we teach the children about sustainability, through gardening, re-using, recycling, and composting.


Applications for 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten are through the Whitehorse PreSchool Association Central Enrolment Scheme – see here.
