Our Centre

Parkmore Preschool teaches children to be independent, confident learners!

Parkmore Preschool is a nurturing and safe place for children to thrive. We embrace the journey of the early years and recognise the importance of children being children – they will get messy, play in the rain and build tall buildings. Our kindergarten provides opportunities for children to acquire life skills through challenge and independence, learning through community, and having fun!

We value our relationships with families and children, and aim to provide a respectful centre that understands and appreciates the diversity of our children, families and wider community.

Parkmore Preschool proudly displays the Kinder tick to help families feel confident that our program is recognised as a funded kindergarten program and:

  • Is led by qualified staff
  • Children benefit from play-based learning
  • The kindergarten program is funded and approved by the Victorian Government
  • Our program complies with government guidelines and the National Quality Framework
