At Lilydale Preschool we aim to provide a caring, safe and nurturing environment. We endeavour to develop your child’s abilities in many different ways. Through discovery, discussion and interaction, children are encouraged to learn and grow and, above all else, enjoy their time at the centre.
Our outdoor facilities are well shaded and feature a fabulous playground, including our fantastic new riding track and rubber surface play area, sandpit, cubby, swings, slide and climbing apparatus’ together with vegetable plots and child-friendly gardens. The indoor areas are spacious. The carpeted area is used for construction, puzzles, home corner activities, fine motor activities, and is where we have our group sessions such as story time. The wet is used for a range of fun, creative projects such as painting and has chairs and tables for activities and meal times. The children also have their own ‘little people’ toilets and an optional uniform.
Our teachers are highly qualified and provide a varied and stimulating program of activities to support and encourage each child’s progress in all areas of development. Basic activities such as painting, pasting, drawing, play-dough and blocks are always available. These activities are enhanced and supported by additional art, craft, music, movement, visitors and specific tasks that are based on current interests and abilities. Details of these activities are supplied in the fortnightly planning cycle snap shot available for parents to view on the noticeboard and parents are always welcome to participate in the program.
