East Lindfield Community Preschool is a community preschool which has welcomed, cared for and educated children as part of the greater community for over 50 years. It is a place where our committed teachers and educators inspire our children to develop a strong sense of identity while giving them a place to belong.
We welcome families from all cultures and ethnic backgrounds and aim to honour and respect our community's diversity.
We are open Monday-Friday from 7.30am-3pm. The Preschool operates on a 4 term basis as set for the NSW Public Schools and is closed on Public Holidays and School Holidays.
East Lindfield Community Preschool is committed to the employment of staff who are appropriately qualified and experienced. All educators have formal qualifications in Early Childhood Education. Each class has a trained 4 year university early childhood teacher, and a qualified educator.
We believe that young children's play allows them to explore, identify, negotiate, take risks and create meaning. The intellectual and cognitive benefits of playing have been well documented. Children who engage in quality play experiences are more likely to have well-developed memory skills, language development, and are able to regulate their behaviour, leading to enhanced school adjustment and academic learning. Curriculum decision making contributes to each child's learning and development outcomes in relation to their identity, connection with community, wellbeing, confidence as learners and effectiveness as communicators. In play, children usually have increased feelings of success and optimism as they act as their own agents and make their own choices. Contact us for more information.

Speech Pathology. Last week, 25 – 31 August 2019, was Speech Pathology Week. This week promoted the work done by Speech Pathologists with more than 1.2 million Australians who have a communication disability that impacts their daily life.
Speech Pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listing, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely can also be helped by a Speech Pathologist.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights says that, “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression”. Speech Pathologists play an important role in enabling people with communication difficulties to realise their communication rights.

Just as your baby starts to get older, and you fall into a comfortable routine, it comes time to toilet train. And all of a sudden you find yourself in a spot where you just don't know what to do! Here are some helpful hints to get your prince or princess on the throne.
Pick the right time
Most children aren't ready to use the toilet until they are two or three years' old.
Start preparing your child
It's a good idea to prepare at least a week
Give it a go
It's a good idea to wait until you've got a quiet week at home before starting. Begin first thing in the morning by putting your child in their special underpants, and some old, loose-fitting clothes.
The first few weeks
Toilet training doesn't happen overnight; it might take your child just a few days to get the hang of it, or possibly a few weeks.
Sometimes children need a little extra help.
If you find yourself getting angry, or you feel as though your child is not responding, simply stop. Have a break and try again in a few weeks.
