Welcome to Hadlow Preschool

Mission Statement

To provide a balanced programme which promotes the holistic development of all children.

Opening hours. The preschool operates from 8.30am to 12.45pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 8.30am to 2.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  

The daily programme offers a consistent balanced approach to learning. At 9am we have 'mat time' to greet everyone and share stories, from 9.20 - 9.40am we work in three groups, each with one of our teachers and practice our pre school learning skills, at 9.40am we have 'music time' and burn off a bit of energy before Morning Tea. After morning tea we have an hour and a half of free play time which is vital for children's social, physical, emotional and cognitive development. We all come together again for lunch.

The preschool offers the 20 hours ECE funding option. 

The preschool has a maximum of thirty children aged from three to five years of age. 

Located in the Hadlow School grounds, the preschool is housed in a purpose-built building enclosed in a secure playground.
