Through play-based experiences, we help children learn and thrive!
Children learn best at Kindergarten through hands-on experiences, within a play based program, that is inspiring, dynamic and fun. At East Ivanhoe Preschool, we are committed to providing this in our 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs.
Our playroom is filled with natural light, order and beauty. You will notice as you visit East Ivanhoe Preschool that each play space is free from clutter, and every material provided for the children is considered for its purpose. As the year progresses every corner is ever-evolving to encourage children to delve deeper and deeper into their interests.
Our yard is double story and has wide array of mature trees, beautiful ferns, and plants of different varieties and textures. Our yard also has vegetable patches, places to dig in the dirt, sandpits, and places to climb and run.
We have a strong belief in teaching the arts, with an art program taught by an artist running once a week. This program acknowledges the experiences, skills, passions and gifts of our children.
An exciting new purpose-built centre for East Ivanhoe Preschool is scheduled for opening in time for the 2024 kindergarten year. The new facility will provide additional space for the expanding 3 year old program.
While the build is undertaken, during 2023, the service will be operating its high quality programs from the newly opened Bellfield Community Hub. More information is here.
