From our Director Dimitra Perras

As a director, I believe that all children should be respected and nurtured in a positive and caring learning environment.

Kenny Street Community Preschool has a homely and secure feel as soon as you walk in the door. Our educators pride themselves on the relationships they form with the children, their families and the community.

We believe in providing the highest of quality care and education for the children within our centre and promote learning through a play based and intentional teaching curriculum.

What Parents are Saying About Kenny Street Community Preschool

“The staff are all very helpful and caring. They take a genuine interest in each child which is often hard to find.”

“I love the friendly teachers, the family environment, and hearing about all the great group time activities and games our kids are learning. Great centre!”

“The centre we deal with is excellent. Very approachable friendly staff who are like family.”

“The team at Kenny St are amazing! My 4 boys love it there & I’m really grateful for the service. The boys were really unhappy at another centre prior to coming here & I felt instantly comfortable that the boys were getting the best care from the very first day at the centre.”

Our intimate and homely environment provides 32 children with a home away from home as they engage in play-based fundamental learning experiences.

Our qualified and experienced educators and teachers are passionate about delivering high quality early childhood education, and in engaging in strong, nurturing relationships with our children and families.

Each child has a focus teacher and our small numbers allows more time for educators to get to know each individual child personally and help them build on those ever-important fundamental learning skills.

We have a great support network from the local and wider community, including the local Primary School, which enhances our Transition to School program.

A great aspect of our centre is that it is located close to Wollongong CBD, which supports working families of the Illawarra and Wollongong region. This position is also fundamental for our programs and involvement with the wider community through excursions and incursions.
