Our Preschool

Our preschool is set on one acre of land in the small and beautiful town of Burringbar. There is plenty of room for our children to explore their environment in our large and natural outdoor area. We have a focus on sustainable living and have solar panels, water tanks and encourage waste free healthy lunch boxes, with scraps being fed to our healthy and happy chickens. The outdoor area has a new fully equipped undercover playground, sandpit, giant slide, dry creek bed, vegetable patches, fruit trees and large shade trees and a chicken coop.

The children also love playing with a large range of equipment, art supplies, toys, books, trikes and scooters as well as recycled and natural materials. Inside is an open plan and inviting space where we can have group activities and relaxation time.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Thank you for choosing our Preschool service for the care and education of your child!

We appreciate that the selection of a Preschool can be a difficult decision, and it is an honour
to be chosen to assist your child’s entrance in to the world of education. We will make every
effort to ensure that your family feels comfortable and confident in your decision.

On this website, you will find lots of information regarding your child’s time with us here at
Gumnut Community Preschool so grab a cuppa and sit back for a read. We are always available
to ask questions and help in any way with your family’s time here.

As an entirely non-profit community-run school we also welcome and encourage parent/carer
involvement at all levels, from maintenance assistance to cake baking, assisting with fundraising and committee work, to sharing your skills with our children in class! The expression it takes a village to raise a child is very true and here at Gumnut Preschool it’s a lot of fun to get involved with your child’s class, as well as getting to know and develop friendships with other fabulous families.

If you have any questions or thoughts, please don’t hesitate to talk to the director and teachers who are always keen to have input about your little one. More input means better ability to help integration and learning outcomes. By working together we can achieve great outcomes, allowing your child to enjoy their experience and prepare for their future schooling years. Looking forward to meeting you around school!

Kind Regards,
Cassandra Dears
Committee President
