Established in 1974, Yarraleen Preschool is nestled at the end of a quiet street backing onto beautiful open parkland in Bulleen.

Our preschool offers a nurturing, relaxed and home like environment, where children can freely and securely explore with play-based experiences which will encourage and challenge them to develop.

Our staff are highly qualified and are all passionate about their roles within the preschool.

We are proud of our long and rich history of community involvement and ownership of the preschool by families, children, teachers, staff and members of the local community.

We believe that children should have the opportunity
to learn and grow

  • Experiencing a safe, fun and engaging atmosphere that motivates each child to explore, discover, learn, and acquire skills for school readiness.

  • Experiencing socialisation opportunities that develop positive relationships with other children and teachers by learning to share, take turns, care, ask and invite.
  • Experiencing an enriching curriculum that has a specific emphasis on inclusive play- based learning, providing opportunities for children to learn as they discover, improvise, imagine and create; and
  • Being encouraged to problem solve, develop listening skills, persistence, cooperation, independence and organisation skills to help prepare for the journey of life long learning.
