Wallalong Preschool

Wallalong Preschool

About Us

Wallalong Preschool is situated in a beautiful rural area. Our landscaped playground gives children opportunities for running, climbing, exploring and discovering the many wonders of nature. Worm farming, composting, gardening and caring for our resident guinea pigs is a natural part of our everyday program.

We are a 20 place service operating during school terms from 9am to 3pm, excluding Mondays. Extended hours are available from 8:15am to 4:15pm. Children supply their own morning tea, lunch and drinks. Water is available at all times.

Our Philosophy

Respect for our children, each other, and our environments.

We believe this to be a fundamental element in our journey of Belonging, Being and Becoming.

Our indoor and outdoor environments offer many opportunities to explore, discover, create and imagine while focusing on the natural elements.

We believe warm, nurturing relationships provide opportunities for children to engage in meaningful interactions with each other and staff. These interactions enhance all areas of children’s development.

We value all cultures and offer inclusion of all aspects of families’ and children’s needs.
