Facilities and programs

Greensborough Preschool is committed to providing a program which meets the needs of all children and families in our local community. All children attending our centre receive expert care and planned experiences. All areas of your child's development - physical, social and emotional, aesthetic, linguistic and intellectual are covered in our daily programs.
 
Our kindergarten program is based on the individual needs and interests of the children. The staff engage children in the program by challenging them to solve problems, ask questions, listen and reason, attend to and complete tasks, relate to peers and adults positively, work independently and in a group, take responsibility for themselves and extend their experiences and knowledge of the world.
