Our Preshil Kindergarten is Expanding! 

Preshil’s kindergarten has long been established as a progressive, community-focused kindergarten with a focus on playful inquiry in a beautiful natural environment. Preshil students often go on to become bold, independent and motivated learners. The curiosity at the heart of this approach is explicitly fostered in the kindergarten. Our kindergarten program is centred around an inquiry-based model, designed to encourage a playful approach to learning that is driven primarily by the children’s curiosity. Engaged in team-teaching and community learning, our kindergarten staff are well-versed in play-based learning, nature pedagogy, and working together with a combined group of 3 and 4 year olds.
