Goonellabah Preschool is a community based preschool located in the heart of Goonellabah.

Our tucked away location offers secure play spaces while also ensuring ease of access for drop off. Our pre-school has extensive equipment and resources with a great playground including expertly designed play equipment, bike track, sand and water play, undercover play area and children’s vegetable garden.

Our educators offer a wealth of early childhood experience, enabling a positive and nurturing learning environment. ducational programs are based on the interest of the child and incorporate numerous learning activities including literacy, numeracy, art, craft, science, the environment, perceptual motor skills, culture, music, movement, language and social skills. All of this whilst playing and having fun!

Community is not just in our name - it's who we are ! We are run for community, by community! Parent involvement is not only appreciated but essential in running our Preschool to best meet the needs of our local community. Better yet - we are not for profit, allowing us to maintain affordable and quality preschool education.

Parent involvement is vital in keeping our Preschool community orientated. We encourage our parents to consider joining the committee to guide meaningful decision making. There is also opportunity for families to participate in events, excursions and shows and contribute to planning for their child.
