Preschool and Playgroup

Preschool

Our Lady of the Visitation Preschool is a dynamic learning environment which aims to develop creative, confident learners who have a strong sense of self.

Children are encouraged to think differently, embrace new challenges, work collaboratively, build new friendships and to celebrate their successes. We value the role families have as the first educators of their children and invite families to participate in the life of the preschool.

We provide meaningful play experiences that engage children’s imagination and curiosity by allowing children to be creative, independent directors of their learning. Our preschool is an inclusive setting, where each child’s culture, interests and needs are nurtured in a safe stimulating and challenging environment that encourages a love of learning. We ensure children have a balance of structured and open-ended experiences, where they are encouraged to question, predict, problem solve and express themselves. Our preschool also fosters cognitive development where opportunities for rich language, literacy and numeracy are incorporated each day. 

Children are able to access 15 hours of Preschool per week, for up to 40 weeks in the year, before they begin school. We offer Preschool 5 days a week, with a range of different time allocations, with both half and full day options. 

Our preschool also provides a range of other services to assist families. Some of these include:

  • Pre-entry Program in the year prior to commencing kindy
  • Transition Program for 2 terms prior to starting Reception
  • Access to free speech pathology services
  • Transfer service to and from Le Fevre Community Children’s Centre (for long day care options)
  • Access to Before and After School Care and Vacation Care

If you require more information about our Preschool or would like a tour please contact the school.
