Barriburn Preschool

A place of creativity, wonder and discovery!

At Barriburn Preschool we run 3 and 4 year old Kindergarten programs. We have a huge playground, large established trees and garden, and a friendly, caring and relaxed atmosphere. We pride ourselves on being a small and inclusive community, with one group of children in the 3 year old group, and one group of children in the 4 year old group.

Our play-based learning programs are responsive to each child, are meaningful, and build on their interests, cultures, strengths and knowledge. We provide an environment that is safe and supportive, with a rich and diverse range of experiences that promote children’s learning and development.
