Weetangera Primary School - Preschool Unit

About Weetangera Primary School - Preschool Unit

We have three classes that make up our preschool team. I am delighted to introduce our fabulous teaching team, Lauren Metcalf and Virginia Hambly, as well as learning support assistants, Katrina van den Sterren, Sally Allan and Dianne Davies.

At Weetangera Preschool we provide an inquiry based learning program where children have the opportunity to engage in sustained and meaningful learning experiences in open-ended, rich environments. The program is designed using the Being, Belonging and Becoming: Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF). Copies of the EYLF are available at the preschool or online at https://education.gov.au/early-years-learning-framework.

Did you know that this year’s preschool students will graduate in the year 2031? It is for this reason that our children need more than just information or ‘knowledge’ in order to manage in our ever-changing society. They need the skills and dispositions to learn to be creative, innovative learners and to be able to communicate their understandings independently and confidently. The process of nurturing such learners begins at a very young age and is very much embedded in all we do at Weetangera Preschool. An important part of what we do at preschool is cultivate the children’s curiosity about the world around them and equip them with the skills required to inquire, investigate and ask questions in order to support their learning.

At Weetangera Preschool we value our parent community and encourage all families to be involved with our school. We welcome families to participate in school activities, such as excursions, as well as volunteering to assist in the preschool classroom. Parents wishing to share a particular interest or expertise with staff and children are also welcome, especially if you have expertise that could enrich any of our inquiry units throughout the year. If you would like to assist in any way, please contact your child’s class teacher.
