Welcome to Scone & District Pre-school

- Community based service
- Operates during school terms
- Early Years Learning Framework
- Develop trusting relationships
We offer a play based program guided by the Early Years Learning Framework for all children 3-5 years, focused on documenting every child’s development.
Our programs are developed based on the children’s interests and implemented in such a way as to further develop and enhance the whole child in a holistic way.
Our environments offer children the opportunity to explore many experiences that will challenge and excite them.
We value the importance of developing trusting relationships with families and children so together we can provide a quality service that will engage the children every day.
We recognise that children’s learning is dynamic, complex and holistic. Physical, social, emotional, personal, spiritual, creative, cognitive and linguistic aspects of learning are all interwoven and interrelated.
We believe that children have the potential to co-construct knowledge and the ability to share learning experiences. They are active participants in their learning and can assist in decision making.
We value the knowledge that families have of their child and encourage them to share their insights and perspectives with us.
We believe family members are partners in their children’s learning.
We believe teachers are leaders and all staff members are educators who partner children and families in learning.
Reflects the ideals of The Early Years Learning Framework: Being, Belonging and Becoming.
We believe that the physical environment is an essential factor in engaging children in learning.
We believe that as a community based Pre-school, we are an integral part of our local community.
