Panania Pre-School Kindergarten is a private and family operated business, which opened its doors over 40 years ago. We cater for children aged from two to five years and are open 8am till 4pm from Monday to Friday. The pre-school operates for 49 weeks of the year, closing for 3 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period, and can cater for up to 36 children a day.
At Panania Pre-School Kindergarten we pride ourselves on delivering high quality care and strive towards providing a welcoming, safe, supportive and homely learning environment for all children and their families. We work within the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the National Quality Standards (NQS) along with our own School Readiness program, to ensure that children receive the highest quality care and early education by providing them with the tools, experiences and learning opportunities required for the best possible start to their school life and beyond.
Our educators work toward developing a strong understanding of each child’s cultural backgrounds, home-life and learning needs using this knowledge, resources and the support of external professionals to adapt their methods of teaching to each individual child. The pre-school’s team of educators are experienced, professional, enthusiastic and dedicated to their role; include a Bachelor-qualified teacher and Diploma trained staff who as a team advocate care, nurturing and education of children within their care and the wider community.
My daughter started at Panania Pre-School Kindergarten at the age of two. From the first day the teachers provided a very loving, nurturing and safe environment which was very re-assuring. The teachers have lots of energy and enthusiasm and work hard at developing various skills in the children. Over the last 18 months I have seen my daughter develop into a confident and social little girl who loves going to preschool.
My son is 3 and this is his first year at Panania Pre-School. He has become more confident and independent and comes home singing new songs, pointing out new shapes, counting and telling us all the fun he is having. The communication between teachers and parents is excellent and they are always willing to help, listen and support.
We look forward to sending our youngest to Panania Pre-School in the future.
My experience at Panania Pre-School Kindergarten has been exceptional. My daughter started a year and a half ago at the age of 2 and I found the teachers very helpful and caring with her separation anxiety. The staff are very dedicated and professional and display a nurturing and energetic attitude towards all of the children, you can definitely see the teachers enjoy their job.
I also appreciate the feedback provided, whenever I pick up my daughter one of the teachers always comes over to tell me about her day, without me even asking and I really enjoy receiving the weekly reflective journals via email on all the weeks’ activities.
I can safely say that my daughter has blossomed into a very confident young girl and learnt a lot from all the wonderful teachers at Panania Preschool. I honestly don't think thank you is enough.
Panania Pre-School Kindergarten has been part of my family for 5 years. My sons have each spent 3 years at the preschool during which time they have grown in confidence, knowledge and independence. The dedicated and professional staff are warm and friendly and provide a loving, nurturing and safe environment for the children. The children are exposed to a wide variety of learning topics while individual interests are encouraged and fostered. They are not only taught the fundamentals but so much about the world around them. My boys gained the skills – both academic and social – to transition to ‘big school’ with ease – something every parent wants.
The preschool has a strong relationship with both the children and parents. Parents are kept involved via weekly Reflective Journals, policy updates, surveys, reports and portfolios. While our time at Panania Pre-School Kindergarten will soon come to an end (I am very sad thinking about it!), I am so grateful for the vital role the school and staff have played in the early education of my boys. The preschool will always hold a special place in our hearts and I have no hesitation in recommending Panania Pre-School Kindergarten to any family. Thank you.
My three children have attended Panania Pre-School Kindergarten over the past 5 years and I cannot recommend this centre highly enough. The centre is a place of learning, growing and most importantly a place where the children feel safe and happy. This is due to the professional and caring nature of the staff. I think the role they play in nurturing children and preparing them for school is one of the most important jobs in life. My children loved attending Panania Pre-School Kindergarten and I couldn't recommend a better centre for children to start their academic and social development.
