Templestowe
Preschool

Our Centre

Providing high-quality Kindergarten for over 60 years!

At Templestowe Preschool, we provide 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten programs. Our nurturing and experienced educators deliver our program in a bright, welcoming and engaging playroom, with a large outdoor play area, incorporating both natural and man-made areas. Our building also contains a covered veranda so that children have the flexibility to enjoy an indoor and outdoor program throughout the year.

To grow, develop and learn children need to experience play-based learning that is engaging and open-ended. Play is a means for exploring, creating, discovering, imagining and communicating as they begin to understand the world and community they are a part of.
