About Us

Koalaroo Preschool’s mission is to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for Toddlers and Preschool children. Our focus is to provide stimulating early care and educational experiences that promotes each child's social/emotional, physical and cognitive development.

Our goal is to encourage & stimulate children to be life-long learners!


Philosophy

At Koalaroo Preschool, we believe children are entitled to opportunities that support and encourage their emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth and development in a nurturing and supportive environment. We seek to stimulate and develop children's creative thinking and problem-solving skills through both teacher- and child-directed activities. We strive to promote a positive self-image for each child by encouraging exploration, fostering the development of social skills, cultivating friendships, and promoting a strong sense of community. We support, encourage and facilitate a co-operative working relationship with parents in order to meet the needs of the children entrusted to our care.
