This means that there is a combination of guided play and learning, adult-led learning, and child-initiated learning. Flinders Pre School provides quality early childhood education delivered by professional staff in a warm and nurturing way that addresses the individual needs of each child and their unfolding identities. Our primary focus is the happiness, growth, education and wellbeing of every child. We provide our children with the education, care and support they need to grow and develop into happy, healthy people and be ready and confident for school.
