The first years of a child's life are ones of enormous growth - in fact, they represent the greatest period of growth in a human's entire lifespan! The preschool experience supports and enhances this natural development in children, building on your child's existing skills while furthering their needs for the future.
Balcombe preschool offers an extremely high-quality program which prepares children exceptionally well for formal education.
Our preschool program is based on the early childhood curriculum as well as our teacher's knowledge and understanding of childhood development and learning styles. The program is also influenced by the interests and desires of the individual children.
Connections with our local community
Visits are organised each year to help the children feel connected to their local community.
Living beside the sea, we feel it is imperative that children not only learn about being safe around water, but also to gain an understanding about the marine environment and how to preserve its natural beauty.
Term One’s visitors therefore usually include: Victorian Marine Rescue, Kings Swim Centre Water Safety Presentation, and “Seaweed Sally” from Southern Ocean Education.
Every year Mt Martha CFA invites us to take part in their "Fire Safe Kids" Program. The children also learn about other workers in the community who help us such as the local postie, and the local librarian who visits during “Book Week”.
