The purpose of the Lismore Parish Centre Preschool is to provide a safe, nurturing and stimulating preschool service that encourages the physical, social, emotional, intellectual and creative development of our community’s children. We support positive relationships, the development of self-responsibility and the fostering of each child’s wellbeing.

Our local programme reflects the diversity of our community – spiritually, materially and culturally. We do this inside the funding bodies’ guidelines and licensing requirements, through professional management of the preschool and through strong community and business liaison. We do this because we recognise the need for honouring the early childhood years as critical to the well being of our community.

We offer the service in a sustainable, environmentally friendly setting encouraging family involvement with respect for their parenting styles, and by using professionally educated teaching and support staff to deliver the programme and work with families. We actively develop expert programmes for children with additional needs to attend and thrive.
