East Ivanhoe Preschool is a community kindergarten that has been providing a wonderful learning environment for children since 1958.

Our program is inspired by the fundamental principles of the Reggio Emilia philosophy.  The core of this approach is our vision of the child as strong, capable and resilient, rich with wonder and knowledge.

Our program promotes inquiry-based learning through exploration of the world around us and the children’s own interests.  Our planning is designed to have emphasis on art, creativity and nature.  

Our Preschool is a space where each child feels safe, secure and supported to become confident and thrive as they start their educational journey.  We actively encourage parental contribution and involvement in our Preschool.

Currently, we run two groups of four year old kindergarten, for children in the year before they attend primary school (15 hours per week) and two three year old kindergarten session (5 hours per week).
