Educational Program

Our Educational Leader is Kelly McPherson. She leads the development and implementation of the educational programs in our service.

Here at Narromine Preschool we believe children learn through play.

We offer a child directed interest based curriculum which embraces the Early Years Learning Framework Principals. The highly trained educators within our Preschool respond to children's strengths interest and knowledge and develop a program that allows for child directed activities that will engage and inspire learning and imagination. We embrace all   cultures within our community and prepare children for Primary School.

What is the Early Years Learning Framework?

This is a National Early Childhood Education Curriculum where all children are offered the same high quality early childhood education.

The Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming.

  • Belonging is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place.
  • Being is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just ‘be’—time to play, try new things and have fun.
  • Becoming is about the learning and development that young children experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from an early age, which shapes the type of adult they will become.

Transition to school

We believe that one of the responsibilities of the preschool, as well as developing confident learners, is preparing children for the new world of infants school.  We believe that the most important aspects that a child needs to possess, to be ready for school is the social and emotional abilities to cope with school.  The confidence to be in a new environment, the ability to follow instructions, to ask for help and to follow routine is fundamental of a successful school transition.  We work with the children, families and local schools to develop a program where the children are familiar with the school before they start.  We communicate with the teachers and schools about the individual children, so that children are known before they begin.  We believe a successful transition program is only possible when everyone works together and we continue to build strong relationships with the schools.

Orientation to Preschool

We offer orientation to pre-schoolers to ensure all families starting in the new year are ready and well informed about what preschool involves. Stay tuned for more information as the year comes to a close.
