Templestowe Preschool

Providing high-quality Kindergarten for over 60 years!

At Templestowe Preschool, we provide 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten programs. Our nurturing and experienced educators deliver our program in a bright, welcoming and engaging playroom, with a large outdoor play area, incorporating both natural and man-made areas. Our building also contains a covered veranda so that children have the flexibility to enjoy an indoor and outdoor program throughout the year.

To grow, develop and learn children need to experience play-based learning that is engaging and open-ended. Play is a means for exploring, creating, discovering, imagining and communicating as they begin to understand the world and community they are a part of.

SPACE TO EXPLORE

We have large indoor and outdoor play spaces so that children have plenty of room to move and explore. Our playground is large and leafy, with a covered sandpit, timber kitchen, climbing equipment, swings and two veggie patches.

LOCAL EXCURSIONS

Excursions are a key part of our curriculum. Venturing out into the local area allows children to explore the world around them, and feel a part of a community. We are located next to Templestowe Village, close to shops, cafes and beautiful parkland.

SAFETY IN THE SUN

We value the outdoor environment and believe that children benefit from experiencing seasonal changes. We are very conscious of keeping our staff and children safe in the sun; therefore, we are official participants in the SunSmart program.

Our Values

Templestowe Preschool acknowledges the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which the Preschool is built.

We acknowledge the right of every child to learn, to feel positive about who they are and to become a valued member of our kindergarten community. We believe children to be capable, curious and active contributors to their own learning and our approach supports children to develop social skills, self-confidence and resilience.

Our program is flexible and play based, providing a balance between guided play and child directed opportunities to nurture children’s interests, independent thinking and creative expression. We value the outdoor environment and believe that children benefit from experiencing the seasonal changes, opportunities for physical development and time to play in a garden. We love messy play!

Our Commitment

Templestowe Preschool supports children’s learning through the implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework- Belonging, Being and Becoming which describes the 5 learning outcomes, practices and principles together with the Victorian Early Learning and Development Framework.

As educators we:

  • Work in partnership with families to develop a learning program responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities through play.
  • Embrace diversity and respect the backgrounds and cultures of all families whilst ensuring cultural awareness and acceptance.
  • Provide a healthy and stimulating environment and to form secure, trusting relationships with all children. Such relationships help children to feel safe and confident to try new things and to learn.
