About Auburn South Preschool

A kindergarten with a beautifully-shaded and spacious playground nestled within the tranquillity of Anderson Park. 

Auburn South's play-based program encourages children to help design their education program by supporting their interests. The kindergarten helps children grow at their own pace and utilises each child's unique learning style. The result is children with the confidence to express their ideas and share their experiences.

Learn more about the centre's staff, programs, facilities and philosophies on their website.

Note: Demand for 3-year-old places at this kinder is high. But there are more places available in the 4-year-old program. So if you are not offered a 3-year-old place you might still select this kindergarten as your first preference for the 4-year-old program in the following year.

Selection criteria variation

Auburn South has a Parent Participation Policy that affects the selection criteria. Contact the Auburn South Preschool Enrolments Officer at [email protected] for more information.
