Nara Preschool

​Inspiring lifelong learning!

With dedicated educators, we run a high-quality preschool program for 3 and 4 year olds, and their families. With beautiful facilities, Nara Preschool provides a safe environment for your child to learn and thrive.

Centrally located near several local primary schools in Mount Waverley, Nara is ideally placed for your child to begin their education, forming friendships and a love of learning that continues into primary school.

Facilities and Services

    At Nara Preschool, we are pleased to offer the ELLA learning initiative within our program. Our children are taught Japanese by Azumi Kobayashi. This allows the children to spend hours each week learning to speak Japanese, in a fun, relaxed setting!

    We are located in a diverse community and incorporate a variety of different cultures in our program. By sharing in our discoveries, children are able to gain deeper understanding of their peers, as well as the world around them.

    Nara Preschool has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standards. Our experienced, qualified and skilled educators strive for excellence and continually seek to improve in all aspects of their work.

    We run a School Readiness program to help children cope with the exciting and challenging period of change that marks their transition to primary school. We work in partnership with our local schools to help make children’s transition as smooth as possible.


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