Warragul Community

Our Centre

Warragul Community Preschool Centre is located in Mouritz Street, Warragul.

Our Preschool is noted for its playground, which is unique in the natural beauty and space it provides. It is the perfect place for children to explore, investigate and imagine.

Features such as the vegetable garden, worm farm and chickens allow the children to observe and care for plants and animals and to engage in sustainable practices. With many play and activity spaces, our playroom is light, airy, spacious and comfortable.

Warrgual Community 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
