Keilor Gatehouse Preschool

At Keilor Gatehouse Preschool we believe your child is an individual with unique talents, backgrounds and personalities. Our experience is that children learn best in an environment that nurtures emotional, social, cognitive, physical and communication skills. Our professional educators will strive to empower your child with self-confidence while emphasising the importance of cooperation, sharing and an awareness of others.

Play is at the heart of our programs. Our play-based programs are active and voluntary and come from your child’s interests, their logic and their need to control and organise feelings. By ‘playing out’ what they see and experience in the real world, your child will gain a greater understanding of the world around them.

Our dedicated and experienced educators have developed programs that will encourage your child to develop their independence, personalities and ideas while understanding the importance of respect for others. Our educators will facilitate learning activities for your child to explore the world in ways that are interesting and fun. We believe children learn best through a range of experiences with no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ solution. This environment helps nurture self-esteem and a love of learning.

Your child’s learning journey is documented through observation, learning stories, conversations and artwork. These documents are available to you and we always welcome input and appreciate suggestions about any aspect of our preschool community. We pride ourselves on our trusted partnerships with parents and families.

Keilor Gatehouse Preschool has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard. Information about the National Quality Standard.
