Orange Preschool invests in highly qualified Early Childhood Professionals. Educators respect the needs of individual children. Our focus is on building their social and emotional well-being in a supportive and educationally appropriate environment. Our aim is to enhance and discover the unique qualities in every child.
I have been thoroughly impressed with the level of service, professionalism and care offered by Orange Preschool throughout the four years my children have been in attendance at the centre. The quality of the teaching and the kindness and enthusiasm the teachers exhibit has always been of the highest standard. It is clearly a happy, well-functioning preschool that my children have been excited to attend. As a parent, I have always felt respected and well informed about upcoming events and how my children are progressing. I love Orange Preschool and have made some great friends through the centre. I will be so very sad to say goodbye to the lovely teachers and staff when my youngest child graduates at the end of 2017.
I came to preschool because Mum and Dad thought it was a good place. I like playing with friends. I learn about friendship and being friends with each other and helping each other
