We provide a place and spaces that are wondrous to children.
We see children as competent and capable, providing them with real materials, having access to make their own choices to build on their sense of agency and life long skills. The environment is rich in possibility, wonder and natural materials. Turner Road Preschool has been purposefully designed with the child, families, sustainability and the environment at the forefront.
We are a 20 place specialised preschool for 3-5 year olds. Open from 8:00am-4:00pm, 48 weeks of the year with a 1:5 educator-to-child ratio. We also have an option of an extended day, 4:00-5.30pm. Our tailored 8 or 9.5 hour day, not only provides parents with a care service 48 weeks per year (we close for 4 weeks over the Christmas period), but also ensures they can maximise any Child Care Subsidy (CCS).
Days of attendance are consecutive and can be 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week.
2 days – Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday;
3 days – Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday or
4 days Mon/Tues & Thurs/Fri
5 days – Monday-Friday
Staffing and Ratios
Our increased staffing ratios of 1:5 (1 :10 is mandatory in NSW) allows for effective and meaningful relationships to make sure your child is happy, engaged and relaxed.
We have a highly-qualified, greatly valued team of educators to provide a stimulating, caring environment full of provocations that encourage deep thinking and collaborative problem solving.
Our lower educator-to-child ratio allows your child to be supported in their investigations and inquiry learning, building on their knowledge, extending and challenging your child’s interests and abilities.
