Every day is an opportunity for discovery and growth at Melton West Preschool

Melton West Preschool has been part of the community for more than 50 years. Our passion is to provide high-quality early education for all members of the community and assist children to reach their full potential in a play-based environment.

We believe play is critical to the development of children through exploration, discovery and learning about their world. This in turn teaches them to learn about others and develop confident identities of themselves.

Through play we aim to provide opportunity for children to explore a wide range of experiences and gain skills to help develop their self-confidence, communication and a deeper understanding of the world in which they live.

Within our learning environment, children can develop a sense of community and group identity, as well as strengthening individual identity.

We aim to empower children with the skills, attitudes and knowledge that will help them to develop mutually respectful and rewarding relationships with people who are similar to and different from themselves.

We aim to support and nurture each child’s sense of ‘Being, Belonging & Becoming’.

Located next door to the Melton West Primary School is our two-room kindergarten. We are part of the Melton West Community Centre which also includes a Maternal Health Nurse and a community room for local playgroups.

We have an extensive playground featuring a wide range of climbing equipment, sandpit, swings and cubby house. Our garden provides native trees and plants including a vegetable garden for the children to maintain.

Our service believes in the importance of indoor and outdoor learning spaces. We value sustainability and the influence it brings to taking care of the environment.
