About our preschool

We are a not for profit service that offers a rich, unique preschool program, set in a 2.1 acre natural playground..

Children attending the Preschool have opportunities to learn in our welcoming indoor and outdoor spaces. We have a rich environmental education program offering challenging and hands-on learning in the natural setting of our expansive playgrounds. Our unique bush setting fosters respect and love for the natural world and sustainable living.

We are strong advocates for outdoor play and allowing children to make memories and connections with nature. We pride ourselves on a high reputation gained in our community and firmly believe it takes a community to raise a child. We nurture and enjoy the relationships and connections we build with our families, both past and present.

The 'olde worlde' charm of this 100 year old school house is complimented with natural play-scapes and furnishings. We enjoy the on-going support of the local community. The volunteer members of the Lower Bucca Community Hall lovingly maintain the hall and grounds for the children and families of the preschool and playgroup.

The physical environment plays a major part in the delivery of our program. We endeavour to create a relaxed, safe and inviting atmosphere where children, families’ and staff feel a sense of belonging. By responding to interests and needs we aim to enrich the lives and identities of the children and families of our preschool community
