St Albans West Preschool

Kinder now is free for 3 and 4-year-old children. Read more here.

Our stand-alone centre has been serving the community for over 40 years. At St Albans West Preschool our experienced and qualified early childhood educators develop and implement a high quality program that is based on children’s strengths, needs and interests. Our programs provide children with the opportunity to grow and develop through play - the way children learn best. We ensure children develop in a warm, happy, safe and caring environment that caters for all children’s needs.

Our educators offer activities that are based on a variety of curriculum areas with the aim of inspiring children to achieve their full learning potential.

We have created a centre that reflects children’s cultural identity and recognises each child as an individual with unique talents. Our professionally trained educators strive to assist each child to develop a positive self-image, which enables effective learning, and to develop positive social attitudes. As a community-based kindergarten this is very important to us. We want to promote a kindergarten that respects diversity. Most importantly we want children to enjoy kindergarten!

St Albans West Preschool has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard. Information about the National Quality Standard.


Facilities and programs

We have a large open-plan indoor playroom and an expansive and unique outdoor playground set amongst native trees. This natural environment provides lots of shaded areas to protect children from the sun. Our grounds also feature a vegetable patch, which the children are involved in planning and maintaining.

We also provide versatile equipment for visually impaired children and wheelchair access. The outdoor environment at St Albans West Pre School is the ideal setting for your child to explore, discover and enjoy.
