Our Philosophy

We are committed to supporting the social, emotional, spiritual, physical, cognitive and language development of each child.

Creating a peaceful, caring environment

At Highland Grove Preschool we strive to create a peaceful, safe and caring environment where everyone is treated with dignity and respect and friendships prevail.

Children’s voices drive our curriculum. We immerse ourselves in the children’s world, making thoughtful observations through consultation and engagement.

We are a community of co-learners. Together we explore and discover within our play-based program, enjoying a strong focus on literacy, numeracy and the creative arts.

We encourage curiosity, individuality and kindness.

Nurturing and celebrating our community

Drawing on contemporary knowledge and experience, we nurture and celebrate our community.

Networking between our families, local schools, a variety of allied health professionals and cultural groups is important to our preschool community.

Ingrained in our centre’s ethos is a culture of critical reflection.

Committed to reconciliation

We are committed to advancing reconciliation in Australia, promoting a united and inclusive community with deeper understanding of Country.

We create spaces that promote connection to the natural world, caring for the environment and working to secure its future for generations to come.

A respected and valued team

High quality expectations and practice are the foundations on which Highland Grove’s management and educators advocate for the rights and interests of each child and their families. The level of curiosity, enthusiasm and passion for the early years invites a most unique experience for everyone.

Partnerships and relationships

We treasure the multi-generational relationships which have been formed over time. Highland Grove is a place where partnerships are created, and lasting connections are made. Relationships are the key. By valuing each and every person, our centre ensures that the setting is secure, inviting and genuine.


Highland Grove welcomes visitors to our centre at any time, and we enjoy providing families a tour of our preschool.
