Mt Martha Preschool provides a true child-focused environment where inquisitive minds are encouraged, inspired and supported.
Curriculum: We offer a research-based, comprehensive 4-year-old and 3-year-old curriculum. The 4-year-old program is taught over four sessions per week, which allows for frequent opportunities for children to learn and develop their skills in an unhurried environment. The program is full and busy – but the shorter, more frequent sessions allow the children to access it in a calm and measured way.
Staff: The kinder prides itself on providing high quality education, offering best-practice teaching methods and exceptional staff who are consistently enhancing the program and their own expertise. Our program is play-based and guided by the state government’s Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
Environment: The preschool is nestled in coastal bushland, surrounded by the Balcombe Estuary and Ferrero reserves, which are regularly explored during the kinder’s ‘Out and About’ program. The on-site outdoor space is a real feature of the preschool too and offers countless opportunities for the children to learn, get dirty and use their imagination.
