Do you have a 4 year old who can start school next year?

We currently have availability for children who turn 4 before 31/07/18.


Preschool is a great way to help prepare your child for school, or to help you decide if they are ready to start.

We offer a structured day to provide a gentle introduction to what is required of them at “big school”. Through our play based program, they will discover that learning is fun and will be ready for the next big thing : )

The children participate in group times, including news, music, languages and fundamental movement skills, as well as lots of free play and outdoor adventures. We have a beautiful big playground and the church grounds to explore!

If you’re wondering about whether this might be the right option for your child and family, please contact us on [email protected]

We run tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30am and would love to show you around.

Our outside the gate program encourages children to explore and investigate the natural world.  This program culminates in our Outdoor Day where we learn more about the Aboriginal culture and spend time setting up our own campsite.

    The St John's Preschool is managed by a committee of 9 members. Five of these members belong to the St John's Parish and four members are parents from the Preschool. Parent representatives - Lachlan, Hayley, Chris and Jess have been warmly welcomed into this role. SPLATT after school program has recommenced on Wednesdays 3.30-5pm. See your room leader if you are interested for your child.
  2. Vacancies
    The Preschool currently has vacancies for children starting school next year. Our 3 year old classes are almost full and interested parents are encouraged to put in a waiting list form to ensure a future place. Our waiting list form is available here on our website and tours to see the Preschool are each Tuesday and Thursday at 10.30. Our fees continue to be competitive and a full fee schedule can be found in our resources section.
  3. 2018 Enrolments
    In 2018, the preschool has four classes for children turning 4 before July 31st, 2018 and two classes for 3 year olds. The government have pledged increased funding to community preschools and this has resulted in low fees for 2018. New legislation has meant that a child must provide a Medicare immunisation statement or an immunisation history statement before they can start Preschool.
  4. Term 2 2018 30/4/18 - 6/7/18
    The Preschool currently has some very new enrolments. Our chicken hatching program is delighting the children as new chicks emerge from their eggs. Our lovely room leader Erin has gone on maternity leave and is being replaced in the Jacaranda room by Grace. The educational leader role now belongs to Jenny, our Frangipani room leader. Jenny brings much experience and wisdom to her new role.

This term the Preschool will focus on safety issues. The children will learn and practice road safety through our "bring your bike/scooter to school day" and walking to our local nursing home where the children will perform for the residents. In addition we look forward to a visit from our local fire brigade who will help the children understand more about safety around fire. 

Upcoming Events

Our sustainability program encourages children to take care of our environment through responsible management of waste and observation and care for living things. Our resident adult chickens are daily recipients of this care and in exchange lay eggs for the children to find. In addition we will enjoy a visit from Ecobug who will teach us more about sustainability later in the term.
Parent-teacher interviews are happening this term across all classes. This is an opportunity to ask your room leader questions and to share about your child. The Preschool seeks to work with parents to bring about best learning outcomes for each child in the centre. Parent input and feedback is encouraged and can be given to your room teachers or to Stephanie our Director.
