Our educators are highly skilled and passionate individuals, with over 19 years experience collectively.
We believe in creating a culturally aware community and acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land.
We believe that through respectful and meaningful experiences we are able to provide children with an understanding of the rich history that makes up Australia.
OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM
Our educational program and practice aims to enhance children's learning and development.
Educators use a reflective approach in an ongoing cycle of assessment and planning that aligns with the Early Years Learning Framework, to provide opportunities that incorporate rich play-based learning and child led experiences.
The educational program is a reflection of children's strengths, abilities, knowledge, cultures, ideas and interests.
Through our understanding of the benefits of working in partnership with families, we we strongly encourage and support our families to contribute to the educational program.
We have just recently revamped our front playground!
The addtion of the climbing fort, dual slide and clatter bridge have had a huge impact on the children's opportunities to explore risky play.
At Gwandalan Preschool we place a great value on the benefits of risky play and provide the children with opportunities to explore this in a safe environment.
Our new front playground provides the children with endless opportunites to explore in their natural environment.
