We believe that a child’s first and foremost educator is their family, and we value any input, ideas or beliefs that a Childs family provides us here at Dapto Community Preschool.

Our educators pride themselves on their open and honest relationships with each individual family. We value an aesthetically pleasing, educational and child driven environments and provide a curriculum that enriches these values.

Why choose Dapto Community Preschool?

We are located within the Ribbonwood centre so we have access to the library and community events held within the centre. We are also across the road from Dapto Mall which we take trips to for babychino’s, collection of the mail and involvement in various community events.

We have a lovely natural outdoor space that has a bike track, sandpits,rock’s for climbing, shrubs for exploring, dirt pit and a mud kitchen for messy play!

We have a strong partnership with the local schools and hold a meeting with them each year for families to attend to gather more information about the transition to school process. From this we have created a strong and in-depth transition to school program and focus on the individual child.

We use the hallway between the rooms as our own Art gallery to display various artworks the children have made to inspire and promote creativity.
