Casuarina Street Preschool is located on the same grounds as the Primary School,
and is a part of our early learning centre. It boasts excellent facilities with one
large classroom well resourced and well maintained. It also boasts a modern
kitchen, large veranda at the back, a wading pool, and a variety of outdoor play
The program with its variety of activities is designed to assist each child to
develop; a strong sense of their identity, connections with their world, a
strong sense of wellbeing, confidence and involvement in their learning and
effective communication skills.
The Preschool program is planned to cater for each child's interests and needs,
and to foster the development of certain abilities, attitudes and skills which
will assist their educational development. We use Developmental play approaches, the Early Years Learning
Framework and Strong Beginnings documents to effectively plan and cater for the
needs of each child.
