Parkside Preschool

​At Parkside Preschool, children are given time and space to play, discover and grow!

Parkside Preschool has been serving the community for over 60 years. We are situated on a large block, with well-established trees and shrubs, overlooking Hagenauer Reserve.

We offer 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs, where children are able to explore and experience many activities, both new and familiar. The children are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning and to develop self-motivation.

Within this safe, caring and fun kindergarten environment, our lovely staff help further your child’s social and personal development, and provide fundamental elements to create a life-long love of learning.

Facilities and Services

  • ​SUSTAINABILITY
    At Parkside Preschool, we encourage children to play, observe, interact and respect the natural environment, incorporating sustainable practices. We also teach and model reusing and recycling in our activities.

  • HIGH QUALITY
    Parkside 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.

  • DIVERSE CURRICULUM
    We are proud to provide a multicultural curriculum, which includes celebrating a variety of cultural events and holidays throughout the year. Families are encouraged to share their values, skills and traditions to enrich the children’s learning.

  • SCHOOL READINESS
    We run a 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.

  • LOCAL EXCURSIONS
    Excursions and incursions are incorporated into our programs. These are a great way for the children to have new experiences and learn more about themselves, as well as the world around them.
