At Clunes Preschool we provide a play based indoor and outdoor program giving children opportunities to investigate, explore and learn. We acknowledge every child’s potential and talents and actively engage them in their own personal learning journey. Clunes Preschool encourages children to wonder and delight in the world around them, by providing beautiful outdoor and indoor spaces filled with natural materials for children to explore.
We base our program on promoting respect – for each other, the community and the environment. This is supported through active listening and community engagement, global awareness, sustainable practices and education. Clunes Preschool values and enjoys sharing the ‘Kindergarten journey’ with our children’s families through events, interactive portfolios, informal meetings and respectful relationships. We promote health and wellbeing of our whole community through incursions and excursions, cooking from our garden, caring for our chickens and creating a supportive environment for everyone.
ECKA is committed to recruiting, retaining and investing in a highly skilled, collaborative workforce who are passionate about educating children in the early years.
