Welcome to
Gordon Community Preschool

Gordon Community Preschool is a non profit, community based preschool providing care and education for children aged 3 to 5 years. Operating for over 60 years, the preschool is set in the grounds of the former home to the King family, retaining much of its original warmth and character. We have a long established history within the local community and also place a value on building a sense of community amongst the preschool children, families and educators. The preschool is managed by a Board of Management comprised of preschool parents who work in conjunction with the preschool Director.

Gordon Community Preschool stands on the land of the Guringai people. We welcome families from all cultures and ethnic backgrounds. We aim to honour and respect diversity.

Starting preschool

When your child is starting preschool, it’s normal for you and your child to have mixed feelings. Talking to your child before he or she starts can help them get used to the idea of going to preschool. It’s a great idea to read your ‘I’m going to Gordon Community Preschool’ booklet with your child, even once they’ve started, as it’s a useful tool to discuss the preschool routine and reflect on the experiences they like the most. You can also help your child settle into preschool by having set routines before arriving each day, being relaxed and positive at drop off time and communicating with your child’s teacher.

All of us here at GCP hope your transition to preschool is a smooth one and if you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
