Orbost Preschool

​Orbost Preschool was opened in 1963 through the generous support of the local community – over the years it has continued to receive huge support and remains a community kindergarten at heart.

Our kindergarten aims to provide high quality education and care in a warm, caring and supportive environment, where children are able to access an indoor outdoor program promoting physical and mental wellbeing.

Our kindergarten values sustained and purposeful play and our program is guided by the National Early Years Learning Framework and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
We are committed to providing children with high quality education which will support a positive transition to school.

Parents and family involvement is seen as integral to children’s ongoing learning.
