Gascoigne Preschool

What We Do


At Childville Preschool @ Gascoigne we have enrol children from toddlers to pre school age. We support each child as an individual by carrying out observation on each child on a regular basis, in order to plan specific or group activities to meet each Child's learning and development. We provide a healthy snack of fruits, milk and water for the children during their session. We also hold regular meetings with parents/carers to share the development of their child with them as well as obtain feedback from parent/carer in relation to their child's current interest.

Our value


Our setting provides safe, welcoming and fun environment for children where they enjoy different range of activities which help them in their learning and development. Children in our setting have access to a rich learning environment which provides them with the opportunities and conditions in which to flourish in all aspects of their development. We provide balance across the areas of learning and we respect each child as an individual and value their efforts, interests and purposes. As we are based in a community centre we work in partnership with the community centre as well as the children centre and our children as a result have access to the children centre secured communal garden behind our building and also to the state of the art sensory room.
