Centres (Reynolds Street Community Preschool)
IMAGINATION. COURAGE. INTEGRITY. RESPECT.
We believe that the type of experiences a child may be involved in, in the first five years of their life are crucial in their ongoing learning and development. As such, we are committed to providing a positive and nurturing and safe environment where children are encouraged and supported in their strengths, interests and emerging skills.
We also recognise that a child’s learning and development should be considered on an individual basis, with children included as competent learners in a positive learning environment. This then supports their participation in decisions that affect them.

Why choose Reynolds Street Community Preschool?
We are very strong advocates for positive education for children, families and educators. Providing everyone with skills and resources that support resilience and build mental toughness. We have embedded meditation, yoga and brain breaks into our daily room routines with fantastic calming results!
Our outdoor space includes a water wall, music wall, outdoor kitchen, chalkboard/painting wall, walking beams, a large sandpit area, a vegetable garden, and a stage area where children can role play. It is a very interactive and stimulating environment.
We encourage children to learn a language, with extensions of learning leading to cultural competence. Children expand their knowledge about the variations in languages, and apply these to other literacy tasks, including listening to sounds in words.
This then supports reading and writing. We are regarded as “ELLA champions” due to our successful inclusion within this trial. As a result of the successful trial, the program has been fully embraced by the Government and is available as an important inclusion in our preschools curriculum.
