"As soon as walked into Greenhills Preschool we knew it was the right place for our child. The educators were warm and inviting and we could see the rapport they had with current children. It's lovely to have the natural bush setting and to allow our child to explore the world at their own pace." Claire. H

"It was actually our daughter who chose Greenhills. We went to four kindergartens in one day, and Greenhills was the one that stood out to her, as well as us. It didn't take long for us to know we had made the right choice. Greenhills is a welcoming, supportive and progressive learning environment, and our daughter has flourished during her time here. Thank you to the staff, parents and kinder friends for the smiles and excitement that they create on a daily basis." Megan & Graham C

"When we walked into the kinder three years ago we loved the big outdoor play area. We loved the fact that the teachers took the kids out into the reserve to explore. It has been great to see my first child grow up in a child led learning environment and now my second child is getting to play in this environment as well. My eldest would come back from kinder with a big imagination and every now and then she would come out with some amazing facts and knowledge. The teachers are lovely and are tuned into the child's interests and learning abilities. My eldest child had a great experience at Greenhills Preschool and I can see my youngest will benefit from Greenhills Preschool as well." Jacqui. A

Play is the best way for children to learn. That's why at Greenhills Preschool, your child's learning program will incorporate a variety of open-ended and structured play-based learning experiences. Activities will be guided by your child's interests and capabilities, ensuring your child gets the most out of their early learning experience.

Activities will include:

  • language and literature
  • music and movement
  • art and craft
  • dramatic play
  • science and maths  
  • sensory motor activities
  • messy play
  • cooking and healthy eating
  • recycling and sustainability
  • activities to promote physical coordination
  • excursions and incursions. 

These play-based activities will help your child develop important social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive skills.

All our learning programs are based on the National Early Years Learning Framework “Belonging, Being and Becoming” and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.

Our kindergarten room is filled with an abundance of natural light, providing a bright and welcoming learning environment. Our newly furnished room features an open-plan design that enables educators to set up flexible play experiences that foster children’s imagination, curiosity and exploration. 

Our large outdoor learning environment is surrounded by wonderful native trees and offers the perfect place for children to explore, learn and have fun. Your child will have access to our array of natural resources and play equipment to support their learning, including:

  • a large sandpit
  • a cubby house
  • a mud kitchen
  • swings
  • vegetable garden beds
  • climbing equipment.  

Your child’s program will be delivered by Greenhills Preschool's experienced, passionate and nurturing educators. Our educators are wholly committed to ensuring each child receives the best possible experience at our centre. 

Educators will work in partnership with you – your child’s most important educator – to develop an early learning program that reflects and builds on your child’s interests, curiosities and skills. Educators will also recognise and celebrate your child's unique background and culture, incorporating these into their early learning program. 

Educators will share live updates about your child’s learning via Storypark - a secure, login based ePortfolio. Documentation may include photographs, videos, learning stories, and samples of your child’s work. Storypark will also allow you to contribute to and comment on what your child is doing while in care. You can share your family activities and your child’s updates with educators via Storypark too.

If your child has additional needs, our educators will work with you to ensure your child gets the most out of their early learning experience. Our educators can also connect your family with specialist support if required.
