Mt Colah Preschool Kindergarten, Mt Colah NSW
“Learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when early childhood educators work in partnership with families…Partnerships are based on the foundations of understanding each other’s expectations and attitudes, and building on the strength of each other’s knowledge”
I've been part of the Mt Colah Preschool community for a year now and can give it nothing but high praise. My daughter is warmly welcomed each day she attends and always loves going to preschool.
As a teacher myself, I appreciate seeing age appropriate, evidence based teaching practices in action at Mt Colah Preschool. These include the strong emphasis on learning through play and developing the emotional and social intelligence of each child. The wide variety of activities the kids take part in and the conversations I have at home with my daughter, show that she's taking on the learning experiences offered at preschool and applying them to other areas of her life.
Thank you to each of the teaching staff for your genuine care towards the kids. I truly appreciate the thought and energy you put in to making Mt Colah Preschool a fun and nurturing place for my daughter.
I look forward to starting my son on his preschool journey next year.
We feel very thankful to have such a fabulous preschool that our girls have always loved attending. The staff are welcoming and make every effort to get to know all the children individually thus providing a program based on their individual interests and strengths. The staff are always happy to discuss our girls’ day and anything that may have arisen during the day. We have had 3 children attend Mt Colah Preschool, with our youngest still there, and we will be sad when she leaves to go to school! We would highly recommend this preschool and cannot thank the staff enough for everything they have provided for our children.
"I am so thrilled to have been given the opportunity to spread the word on how absolutely amazing Mt Colah Preschool Kindergarten is. Having recently bought a house in the area, it was a huge step to move our already anxious son into a new preschool. I can honestly say that stumbling upon this local gem was one of the best things that happened to him and our family!
We have received so much care and support during our time at Mt Colah Preschool Kindergarten. For us, developmental issues came to light when our daughter started preschool. These issues were picked up straight away, and we received guidance as to steps to take to gain more clarity on this issue. The teachers went far above and beyond their responsibilities to help my daughter catch up to her peers. They were constantly in communication with us as to how to help her, offering suggestions as well as helping her with therapy homework. Informally they also encouraged her social and emotional skills. What we have been most impressed with is the degree to which our daughter is cared for and valued as an individual, and we couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Mt Colah Preschool is a welcoming, caring and nurturing environment that values each individual child. The educators fully commit themselves to fostering the children’s creativity and love of learning through an engaging curriculum and a variety of play based experiences. There is a stimulating playground, with many opportunities for imaginative play, as well as a vegetable patch where the children can experience growing and sampling produce. The preschool excels at its communication with parents- oral feedback, day books, monthly newsletters and developmental portfolios and at creating links with the local community and environment- visits from emergency services, excursions to local shops, farm animals and a reptile show. Our daughter has absolutely thrived during her two years at Mt Colah Preschool and we are looking forward to our son beginning his preschool journey.
Mount Colah Preschool was part of our family for over 6 years. Our three children were greeted by nurturing, talented and experienced educators each day they attended. The needs of our children were met beyond our expectations. Their interests were valued and incorporated into the teaching programs. Feedback on daily and long term progress was thorough and helpful. Our children were very well prepared for beginning school. They still like to go back and say ‘Hi’ to their preschool which shows the fondness they each have for the teachers and the time they spent there.
"I have had 3 children attend Mt Colah Preschool over the last 4 years. All of my children thoroughly enjoyed their time at Preschool, they loved the friendly staff and all the activities that were planned for them each day. At times I would arrive to pick them up only to be told they wanted to stay longer! All the staff are very dedicated and professional and always have time for you to discuss your child's day with them. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mt Colah Preschool".
"I have had 3 children attend Mt Colah Preschool. They love attending so much over the years they have asked if they can go to Preschool even on a Saturday, asked if they can go 10 days a week or being upset because they don't want to leave Preschool or it is not her day to go to Preschool. All of my children have been fostered in their interest areas and have been strongly encouraged to explore and discover, learning that every experience is a learning opportunity."
“Our son has loved every minute of his time at Mount Colah Preschool Kindergarten. The staff are nurturing, caring and energetic and extremely dedicated to developing the children's confidence and independence in preparation for school. We found the approach to be highly individualistic, with our son's teacher spending one-on-one time with him each day. I particularly appreciated being able to track our son's progress through both regular chats with the teachers and comprehensive developmental reports. Our son has absolutely blossomed over the last two years, largely due to the care and attention he has received from the wonderful teachers at Mount Colah Preschool Kindergarten.”
“I am happy to recommend Mount Colah Preschool to any parent looking for quality childcare. My daughter, now 8, attended the Preschool and now my 4 year old happily attends and will continue to do so until he is ready for 'big school'. The transition to school program is wonderful, with a great deal of consideration given to the child's needs (and parents!). Mount Colah Preschool has a wonderful family atmosphere. The centre provides a happy and caring environment where the children are engaged in an high quality educational program that is made to be fun and interesting, enhancing the learning outcomes. The staff are all friendly, caring and professional. They have strong relationships with the children and parents alike. Their commitment to the well-being, happiness and total development of the children is easy to see. The centre takes care to involve parents, actively pursuing opinions, and advising of any changes through the regular newsletters, or individual notes. Comprehensive development portfolios are completed throughout the year, sent home mid-year for review, and make a great keepsake at the end of the year. The detailed portfolio clearly demonstrates the quality of the teaching, ensuring all areas of your child's development are being pursued.”
