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.

Woolies earn and learn logo.png
 

Gordon Community Preschool is participating in the Woolies Earn and Learn programme from 1st May to 25th June, which is helping Early Childhood services receive new equipment for learning. So if you shop at Woolies and spend $10 or more you can begin to collect stickers to support our preschool!

All you have to do is take a sticker booklet from the table on the front verandah (or you can download one from the Woolies website), fill it with stickers and put it in the box.

There is also a box located at the Gordon Woolworths store.

Please tell your family and friends to also collect stickers in support of our preschool!

Calling all Insect detectives and bird watchers!

What insects or birds have you seen in your neighbourhood?
We invite you to bring in a photo, or a drawing and a description to display in our preschool entry foyer!

At Gordon Community Preschool we look for opportunities to help children feel connected with and part of their preschool community. Sharing photos or drawings and some information about an insect or bird you have seen while out and about as a family can help children feel part of the broader preschool community. We also like to find ways to build connections between home and preschool. The conversations you have with your child about bringing in a photo or about the insect or bird itself, can be tremendously rich and important as it sends a message to your child that you value and are interested in the experiences they are involved in both inside and outside preschool.

 

Let’s encourage our children to get outside and to notice and appreciate the wildlife around us.
