“If we all could see the world through the eyes of a child,
we would see the magic in everything!”

– Chee Vai Tang

Our home away from home

Thornleigh Preschool is a warm and welcoming child care centre. A ‘home away from home’ offering enriching pre-school education and care for children two to six years of age.

With a team of passionate university-trained teachers and enthusiastic educators we proudly embrace a holistic approach to education which ensures each child to grows into an inspired, confident and life-long learner. As community minded educators, we work closely with families on this early education journey and offer a leading Preschool Program in preparation for school.

Children can let their imaginations run wild as they explore and discover the magical outdoor garden. This is where we climb under the shade of the Jacaranda tree, bake scrumptious treats in the mud kitchen and discover the wonders of science with our young gardeners. Indoors, the children benefit from the resource-rich environment, where they can play, problem solve, share and investigate. There are modern teaching technologies; light tables; dress ups; music; books; natural loose parts; puzzles; arts and crafts; and so much more… Come and discover the wonder for yourself.

We are a close knit community. Developing great relationships and many
life-long friendships being created between our families.
We value:


Inspiring spaces for engagement and learning

Uninterrupted activity time to focus and refine learning

Fun, hands on science and technology experiences to build STEM understandings

Possums Group 2-3’s
