We are strong advocates of interest base learning and promote high quality care and education. We provide a nurturing and caring environment to be able to watch and help children grow with all necessary life skills before they journey to primary school.
We love to involve our families in our daily routine and provide special events to cater for this all year. Corrimal Community Preschool also actively engages with the local community.
