Columbia Park Preschool

​Every day is a new opportunity for discovery and growth at Columbia Park Preschool!

At Columbia Park Preschool, we run 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs, where your child will learn, play, explore and have fun. We focus our educational programs and learning around individual children’s interests and provide them with a variety of open-ended, play-based experiences.

We encourage and support each child to reach their potential in all areas of development and learning. We welcome parent involvement and work in partnership with you to create the right learning environment your child.

Facilities and Services

    We have large indoor and outdoor play spaces so children have plenty of room to move and explore. Our environment supports social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative learning.

    At Columbia Park Preschool, we are proud to provide a multicultural curriculum and celebrate a variety of cultural events and holidays throughout the year.

    Excursions are a key part of Columbia Park Preschool’s curriculum. Venturing out into the local area allows children to explore the world around them, and feel a part of a community.

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

    Partnering with Waverley Meadows Primary School, the children have the opportunity to visit and interact with students from various year levels.


Enrolments for 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten are through the City of Monash Central Enrolment Scheme – see here.
