About the Centre/Service Yarra Glen Preschool is a committee managed, sessional kindergarten dedicated to providing a safe, healthy and welcoming learning environment for all children, families and early childhood professionals. We provide 3YO and 4YO kindergarten programs and run an extended care program (Activity Group) to support our preschool community. Our preschool features an open plan learning space filled with natural light and a brand new, natural outdoor learning space for creative and adventurous play. At Yarra Glen Preschool, we understand the vital contribution of play to early childhood development and the importance of child centred learning. We believe that children learn through hands-on experiences, allowing them to wonder, investigate and build on their own knowledge, whilst being challenged by a supportive and intentional learning program. We believe that the best outcomes for children’s learning and development take place where there is a strong partnership and open communications with educators, families and the local community. Yarra Glen Preschool is committed to providing a child safe environment and we recognise the important role that educators play in protecting and advocating for children’s wellbeing.
