We invite you to come along and... 

Learn how each child's individual interests, strengths and abilities are met through our play-based exploration and educational learning program.
Meet our nurturing, qualified and highly experienced teaching staff.

Walk through our preschool and see the artworks and displays.
Chat to families that attend our preschool.

Discover our school readiness program that assists your child to transition to school.

Enjoy some morning tea while your child participates in art and craft activities, pats animals at the kindi farm or jumps on the jumping castle.

We offer pre-schoolers and their families a safe and nurturing, engaging and home-like environment that encourages exploration and discovery.

Every day, we celebrate our children's capacity to learn, relate and shape their own stories through play, friendship and learning encounters. 

Our centre provides a school readiness program, where children are guided in all areas of development, with emphasis placed on social and emotional growth.

We are open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 4pm on Fridays, 50 weeks a year. The Federal Child Care Subsidy applies to our fees for eligible parents. Our full fee is $126 per day Monday to Thursday and $105 for Friday. 

Fully qualified teachers and educators provide a stimulating learning environment to develop the whole child – physical, cognitive, language and social skills - through a play-based learning program. Our staff nurture children’s emotional development in a caring and consistent setting where children can feel safe, secure, happy and confident.

Through small and large group experiences, the children at Apples & Honey Preschool can participate in yoga, meditation, tennis, movement, dramatic play, science, pre-number and pre-writing experiences.

Our beautifully designed natural outdoor environment is a bushland oasis that features a sandpit, a cubby house, climbing structures, a themed garden, a vegie patch and areas where children can explore and play freely.

Each Friday, the children have the opportunity to honour the Jewish festival of Shabbat. Rabbi Nicole from North Shore Temple Emanuel comes to visit, bringing songs and stories. This is a weekly highlight for many of the children.

Our daily program is structured around a combination of informal and formal (structured group time) experiences and interactions. 

Our program encourages children to explore and investigate the world around them. Our staff are here to assist them to contemplate, problem solve and reflect on their world.

Readiness group for parents and carers.  

Vision Australia’s Readiness groups have been developed by, and are led by, our specialist staff including:

•             Occupational Therapists
•             Speech Pathologists
•             Assistive Technology Specialists
•             Orientation & Mobility Specialists
•             Counsellors

Education in the early stage of life is the foundation for independence, inclusion and employment.   So much of a child’s learning is through incidental visual learning and occurs with family. Children who experience a vision impairment learn less by watching others and more through fun and accessible play activities.

Vision Australia’s Readiness groups for parents and carers have been specifically developed to help you build the skills and knowledge needed to support your child to be successful in the home environment and the community, now and in the future.

The groups will include educational sessions for parents/carers about the child development areas they identify as important for their children. These sessions will focus on supporting parents and carers to implement key strategies to support their child at home and in the community with life skills, independence and social inclusion.

PARENT INFORMATION

Breaks, Fractures & First Aid

It is all too often that we see children, while playing, fall down and as a result break or fracture their arm, or wrist. Some sage advice from Mary Dawes, Director of First Aid For You – www.firstaidforyou.com.au is offered below, should parents find themselves confronted with such situation and have to diagnose a broken or fractured arm.

While there is no doubt you will see your child fall countless times whilst playing, basic first aid has the potential to turn the situation around and identify the extent to a child’s injury.

Remember that although many play areas are covered with soft bedding below, it is still extremely easy for a child who falls from a height break a bone or cause a hairline fracture.
Most fractures occur within the arm because children will often place their hands in front of them to break the fall.

Here is a list of some of the telltale signs that your child has broken a bone;

  • If a snap or loud grinding sound is heard, it is an indication that the child has broken a bone
  • There will be deformity, swelling, bruising and pain around the area that is injured
  • It will be painful for your child to move or place pressure on this area – ‘guarding/ protecting their arm from others touching it or from them using it’

The following steps should be followed, should your child experience a fall, injuring their arm;

  • Immediately remove the child from any danger
  • Check the injured area for swelling, bruising or deformity
  • Never apply pressure to a broken limb- simply keep the limb in a position of comfort
  • Seek medical advice as soon as possible

“Supervision is key to minimising the chances a child having a fall and it only takes a split second for this to happen while a child is busy playing. The severity of the fall your child takes is a big indication to the type of injury in which they may have,” adds Mary.

Do a sight – sweep of all areas of play, looking at the potential hazards and the high places children may jump from before letting your child play.

Educate toddlers and older children of the dangers of jumping from high places and climbing on outdoor equipment. Importantly, explain to children that if they were to fall, they could find themselves in a lot of pain, and they should call for help immediately. Remind them to stay calm, without moving the injured area too much.

Please note, these tips and advice are not substitute for first aid knowledge. A first aid course- especially one dedicated to children’s first aid  - such as the First Aid For Kids course will equip your and your kids with the skills needed in such an emergency and you will be grateful you spent the time learning the vital skills.
