We have a team that is committed to quality education and care which enables us to continually reflect and improve on our services.
What Parents are Saying About Manooka Valley Community Preschool
I have one daughter in the nursery and one in the Preschool room. The educators are all Fabulous. They know my daughters. I’m really impressed with the school readiness program plus the exposure to different cultures and celebrations
“The staff at Manooka Valley community preschool go above and beyond to support my children and family”
“The facility staff and care at this centre is amazing! Love watching my happy girl walk into preschool confident and ready for another day of age-appropriate stimulating activities. She even tries to walk down the street to preschool on days off. Thank you all for being so lovely and supportive of our young minds 💕”
“I have recommended and will continue to recommend, Manooka is an amazing place to be”
“We love our daughter being a part of this close-knit, supportive community. Educators are warm, friendly and communicate well with us as parents. It is clear to see the caring and nurturing environment that they provide for all children. We only wish it were open at the time that our older two children were in daycare as we would have certainly sent them here! Thank you to all the wonderful team. “
Manooka Valley Community Preschool is a beautiful purpose built service with new facilities, spacious rooms and a fun filled outdoor environment.
We are a hardworking, professional, qualified and friendly team who go the extra mile to support families and ensure they feel welcomed and comfortable. This is seen through the positive relationships we have developed and positive word of mouth we receive from both existing and incoming families.
We offer extended operating hours support families who work long hours and travel a distance and offer an array of support services for both children and families.
Our program is play-based, supporting children to explore, initiate, experiment and engage with a range of materials and concepts.
Fresh and healthy meals are provided to children daily and are reflective of Munch and Move Healthy Eating Guidelines.
We have a strong commitment towards sustainability, sourcing eggs from our pet chickens and vegetables from our own vegetable garden, cared for by the children.
