WELCOME TO COORANBONG VALLEY COMMUNITY PRESCHOOL

Cooranbong Valley Community Preschool is a non-profit community owned preschool which caters for children 3-6 years and operates Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9.00am – 3.00pm during the N.S.W school terms. Our preschool offers a spacious grassed area with plenty of room for play, exploration and adventure and is set in a natural landscape of blue and green.

Our mission is to provide a pathway to quality early childhood education and development through the National Early Years Quality Framework (NQS).

Our vision is to meet and exceed the expectations and needs of current and future families, and to deliver a high quality interest and play based learning program within the framework of our existing philosophy and mission of the service, and effectively utilise the available facilities to ensure the long-term viability of the service.

Cooranbong Valley Community Preschool is committed to providing the highest quality learning experience for your child in preparation for their entry to school and life. The broad aim of the service is to support families by providing a quality play-based educational programme for three years to school age children.

Operations and Policies – The operations and policies are dedicated towards providing excellent service with integrity, honesty, respect, tolerance, understanding, kindness and concern for others. These are formulated with parent, educator and community input and in accordance with current regulations.

Environment – The environment is safe, warm, clean, secure and inclusive. The educators are caring, highly motivated, qualified, passionate and well prepared professionals. The Early Years Learning Framework vision supports an environment where adult’s and children’s diverse perspectives, ideas, actions, expectations and knowledge can be realised across the five learning outcomes:

Outcome 1: Children have a strong sense of identity
Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
Outcome 4: Children are confidant and involved learners
Outcome 5: Children are effective communicators

Curriculum – The curriculum is non-discriminatory, non-biased, non-threatening and reflects a cross-cultural approach. The pre-school employs the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) as a guide to best practice in developing a quality program for all children who attend. The curriculum is play based and co-constructed in partnership with the children, educators and families.

Relationships – Relationships are at the heart of our service. Parental involvement is welcomed and valued. Our focus is on relationships and partnerships with both educators and children and educators and families. We urge parents and interested community members to be involved in the management and operation of the preschool.

Our Director is Leonie Norman.
