Havilah Road Preschool

​Havilah Road Preschool is an established Kindergarten where families are always welcome to share the children’s learning.
The educators are passionate, friendly and experienced in meeting the diverse needs of families.
Our program is play based aiming to support the individual needs, abilities and interests of the children while being fun, interesting and challenging.​​

We are proud to be offering a second language as part of our daily educational program. This "Learn Languages at Kindergarten" program includes a Karen Teacher joining the Preschool for 2 sessions a week to support and involve all of the children in Karen language activities and experiences. These contribute to communication and literacy skills, enhance engagement and offer many cognitive and social benefits.

The program is a State funded initiative through the Department of Education and will be in place for four years. ​
