Our beautiful seaside preschool connects us to our community and the environment.
About Portarlington Preschool
At Portarlington Preschool the beach is literally our backyard. Our location in the heart of our seaside village connects us to our community and the environment.
We host a Beach Explorers program to help your child learn about how to appreciate and protect our local marine environment.
Your child will benefit from our play-based learning program that values child-led, creative, open-ended experiences to promote development in all areas.
We run a rotational model which means we divide our enrolments into smaller groups. Your child will see the children in their group at all their sessions and also see children from other groups throughout the week. This helps build your child’s social skills. It also gives them the opportunity to work with our other educators across their kinder week.
Our experienced educators acknowledge and extend your child’s interests, and guide them to develop an understanding and respect for each other’s social and cultural influences.
We ensure a welcoming, supportive and friendly environment. We value relationships of the children, parents, families and the surrounding community to create a sense of belonging, collaboration and ownership for all involved.
We’d love to welcome you into our preschool.

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beach excursion over the last two days. It was such a beautiful opportunity for the kids and my child absolutely loved it. I know these things take a lot of effort and I just wanted to say we really appreciate it. Thanks again.”
“Thank you for everything you’ve done to make my child’s year at kinder such a happy one. It means so much that you’re so caring and reassuring, she’s felt so at ease…wish she could take you to school with her next year!”
“We have sent him off every day to kinder knowing he is in the best hands possible. His confidence and sense of belonging have come such a long way this year and we know you have had a lot to do with that, he has really enjoyed kindergarten.”
“To the wonderful educators at Portarlington Preschool, we just wanted to let you know that your kindness, hard work, sacrifice and commitment to our children over these last few months has not gone unnoticed. We are so lucky and grateful to have such beautiful women to leave our kids with each day.”
