Welcome…

Welcome to Lalor Park Preschool’s website. The staff team and management committee hope that you find this information helpful in choosing the right Preschool for your child. Should you require any additional information, or would just like to speak with the Director/Nominated Supervisor, please call us at any time on 96748155.

**Unfortunately due to COVID-19, much of the information on our website has temporarily changed including not being unable to have visitors at our Preschool. We will let you know when we are once again able to invite families in for a tour of our Preschool and to meet the staff team.

Please refer to the drop down menu on the right for further details about Lalor Park Preschool.

Families are very welcome to come and visit at any time for a personal tour of the classrooms and playground, and to ask any questions you may have about the Preschool including the children’s learning program, care and safety, and ways families can become involved.

As part of our enrolment process, your child will be invited to attend an ‘Orientation Morning Tea’ where they will have an opportunity to meet their educators, join in all the activities and take part in morning tea. They will also receive an Orientation Bag full of welcoming items, including a ‘My Preschool Book’, which is a social story book all about coming to Preschool.

Families also attend an Information Evening where we discuss what to expect when your child commence Preschool and ways to support them to make a smooth and happy transition to their new learning environment. It is also an opportunity to discuss the management of our service and ways you can become involved in the Preschool’s decision making process. All families will receive an Information Handbook that provides you with all the detailed information you will need when your child commences.
