Welcome to Bittern Preschool, a centre that was opened in 1992. We have provided a high quality early childhood education to many different groups throughout the last 32 years. In 2024 we are excited to continue this by providing an enriching kindergarten program in both our 3 and 4 year old groups. Our program is based on the National Quality Frameworks, and is centred around the child’s interest. From term two we offer a Bush Kinder program that is closely linked to the local primary school. 

Preschool provides your child with the opportunity to freely socialise, explore feelings about themselves, experiment and be wonderfully creative, all within a safe and comfortable setting. Your child will be encouraged to contribute to, and participate in both group activities and individual ones. By sharing their experiences, they begin to develop a positive self-esteem and at the same time begin to develop an appreciation of the contributions others can make.

A child who has been eased into Preschool is well on the way to feeling confident and independent, which is great preparation for future steps in their learning. The variety of interesting experiences provided at Preschool cover the different areas of a young child’s development. While a child is involved in an activity they are developing their social skills and concepts about the world in which they are a part.

The Preschool year is also a wonderful opportunity for you, the families, to participate and contribute at various levels. You will make friendships with other families and enjoy knowing that you belong to and are an important member of the Preschool community.
