Programs Meet the team What the parents say About the Curriculum


We are proud of our reputation within the local community of providing rich education and care that concentrates on individual children in a family-focussed and supportive way.

Our centre is a welcoming and nurturing space where each child is immersed in a rich tapestry of educationally interactive experiences – a space where children are supported to be their own, unique selves, growing and developing a sense of belonging and empowerment.

KU James Cahill Preschool has been involved in research projects that aim to support educators and families in their understanding of how to nurture children’s social and emotional wellbeing within the context of a preschool environment. Through our involvement with these projects, we have had the opportunity to recognise the importance and power of connection and the enduring effect this has on the relationships between educators, children and families.

Our program offers children the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of learning experiences and activities, each specifically designed to promote children’s confidence as capable, active participants in their own learning. Children are presented with a range of activities including gardening, arts and crafts, music and movement, physical play, block building, sand and water play, science experiments, early numeracy activities such as counting and measurement, and early literacy activities such as reading, drawing and writing.

We greatly value the strong relationships between our staff, children and families, and we look forward to the opportunity of including your family in the life of our centre.
