About Monash Preschool

At Monash Preschool your child will be welcomed, cared for and guided in their learning by a wonderful team of qualified Early Childhood professionals. We provide a learning environment that fosters play based inquiry, collaboration and wonder, as reflected in our Preschool Philosophy.

Children seeking to enter school at the preschool entry point must be four years of age on or before 30 April in that year. Preschool enrolments open in Term 2 of the year prior to the commencement of the preschool year. Enrolment is online through the Education Directorate website (

Our educators work collaboratively to plan experiences for children using The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This enables us to guide intentional and incidental teaching and extend and enrich children’s learning. We provide opportunities for preschoolers to develop a foundation for learning and for them to be successful learners.

The Monash Preschool was assessed in 2018 and rated as Meeting under the National Quality Framework, introduced in 2012 for all early childhood services in Australia. This rating was given in the areas of educational program and practice, children’s health and safety, physical environment, leadership and service management, collaborative partnerships with families and community, staffing arrangements and relationships with children. Monash School received exceeding ratings for our Educational Program and Practice and Staffing Arrangements.

Monash Preschool policies and procedures are available for viewing by parents and carers at any time. The Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations are also available onsite. Please ask a staff member. The ACT Education Directorate policies are also available.

Families are encouraged and welcomed to share their special skills, interests and diverse family cultures with preschool.
