Centres (Picton Community Preschool)
SAFETY. LEADERSHIP. INTEGRITY. INCLUSION. CHILD-CENTRIC. COLLABORATION.
The vista setting of the Preschool provides a peaceful ambience. The back garden is large and open, providing choices of active or passive play, in shaded zones.
The children enjoy the natural spaces of the creek and grass areas, along with the structured areas of the sandpit, climbing and deck activity areas. Moving inside, is the classic Preschool environment where children develop relationships and independence as they play and learn.

Why choose Picton Community Preschool?
Picton Preschool is a happy meeting place for children and their families. Serving the local community since 1971 where play & creativity are paramount to learning and discovery. Children are encouraged to belong, be and become, maintained by nurturing, supportive and intentional educators.
While academics are important, our day is forged by a child-interest-centred curriculum. Our centre focuses on the child’s inter-personal skills…developing their independence… empowering them to make choices… to believe in their own thinking… learning how to live in a micro community of people.
We allow children to be in the ‘now’. The world of school and adult skills will happen because they have been allowed to be children and play within a safe, creative environment. Also our school readiness occurs every day for every child
