Our Preschool Program

Our preschool is located next to the primary campus in Macquarie, in close proximity to Belconnen. We offer a play-based learning environment for preschool aged children. Both the indoor and outdoor areas are interesting and attractive, enabling children to grow, learn and develop in a fun-filled setting at their individual level. At Macquarie we respect the needs of each child.
