St John’s Preschool

​Growing through learning. Learning through play!

At St John’s Preschool, we are committed to providing a high quality early childhood program, with a strong focus on building nurturing and supportive relationships with children, families, educators and the community.

We offer 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs in our wonderful facilities, creating a great place to support and extend your child’s development and learning. Through play, our children learn about creativity, self-expression, problem solving, concentration and independence, all while having fun in our caring and supportive environment.

Facilities and Services

    St John’s 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 respect and celebrate the traditional owners of the land, through cultural awareness in our program. We teach the children to value and respect other cultures and help them develop an understanding of the world around them.

    At St John’s Preschool, we actively promote healthy eating, oral hygiene and sun smart awareness. We are official participants in the SunSmart program.

    At St John's Preschool, excursions are a key part of our curriculum. Venturing out into the local area allows the children to explore, and feel part of a community.


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