All Children, All Abilities, All Possibilities

Who is it for?

Koorana’s Preschools are for children aged 3 to 6 whose families live or work in the Canterbury Local Government Area.

How the preschool program works

Qualified and experienced early childhood educators work closely with your family to develop individual and group programs that support your child’s interests, strengths and relationships.

Your child will have a focus educator who is the main person responsible for your child’s learning program.

The focus educator will talk to you regularly to keep you informed, and ask questions about your child’s interests to help them plan the learning program.

Specialist teachers and therapists provide support within the preschool to ensure that the specific intervention needs of children with a disability are met.

Where does it happen?

At Koorana’s preschools in Lakemba and Roselands.

How long does it go for?

Preschool runs in school terms from 8:15 am to 3:45 pm. Your child would attend for one, two or three days a week until they transition to school.

What if I do not speak English?

Your worker can arrange for an interpreter if you need.

What does it cost?

Daily preschool fees apply. The fees vary depending on the age of your child and whether your family holds a health care card.
