Schools and Preschools


Preschools provide an educational program for children aged 3 to 5 years, during school hours and in school terms. Children generally take their own lunch and snacks and the program provided is usually 2 - 3 days per week.

Further information on Preschools can be found in the North Sydney Children's Services Guide and the online Community Directory (see below). Preschools are licensed by the NSW Department of Community Services.
