Doncaster East Pre-School is a committee-run kindergarten situated in Montgomery Street, Doncaster East. We offer a high quality education program for children aged 3 to 5 years and provide a happy and relaxed environment where each child is valued as an individual. Our varied and balanced program respects each child – challenging and extending development in all areas. Each child, regardless of gender or ability, is encouraged to participate in all activities. Our aim is to help children develop a love of learning and to build resilience by emphasising the importance of communication, collaboration, optimism and conflict resolution skills.
Our learning environment consists of one dedicated kindergarten room with a variety of play spaces and a large outdoor area with a kitchen garden, sandpit, river bed and mud kitchen. Our indoor and outdoor spaces both offer many opportunities for learning and our teachers and educators create beautiful play spaces that invite children to become actively involved within the learning environment.
