Blaxland Preschool Kindergarten has provided an innovative preschool program to lower Blue Mountains families for 50 years. We are a community owned and run, not for profit preschool catering for children from 3 years of age to school entry with an Exceeding the National Quality Standard rating by ACEQCA. Your child’s name can be placed on our waiting list once they have turned 2 years of age.
Our program is based upon providing a rich and inviting play environment that supports the children’s development and learning and is reflective of the children’s interests, strengths and needs.
We work in partnership with families in the management of the preschool and in the program that we present to the children. Family involvement is a core value within our preschool philosophy.
Our curriculum is play-based, child centred and emergent and is reflective of the children’s interests, strengths and needs. It is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF), Belonging, Being, Becoming.
Opportunities to explore Indigenous perspectives, connect with nature through play, and learn about sustainability are important aspects of our curriculum. Activities that promote curiosity, discovery and imagination, problem-solving and encourage the use of the senses are central to what we do at preschool too.

Both my daughters have gone to Blaxland Preschool. It's wonderful! The kids learn through a play based program. It's engaging and responsive to the kids' interests. The staff are incredibly dedicated and truly care about the kids. There is a strong focus on inclusiveness and kids' different complex needs are catered for. It is a true Community Preschool, run by the comminity, for the community. Kids are nurtured to develop the social and thinking skills they need to prepare for big school.
