About Deepdene Preschool

Deepdene Preschool's play-based programs provide a variety of opportunities and meaningful learning experiences for children to explore and learn. It is the way they explore, discover and learn about their world, each other and themselves.

This preschool sees children as active participants in their own learning and recognises this happens best in an environment that provides enjoyable and engaging experiences.

The programs are enriched by a number of incursions and excursions, music, drama, library book borrowing, and a challenging and interesting outdoor program.

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