Welcome to our preschool...

John Brotchie Nursery School is a Department of Education preschool providing an educational program the year before the children start formal schooling.

At John Brotchie we strive for the children, families, educators and local community to feel a sense of Belonging within our preschool.  We value the here and now, and we respect children’s right to unhurried time to enjoy everyday experiences and to enjoy just Being!  The children’s time at preschool offers unique opportunities and challenges for children to explore, learn and develop relationships. 

Through our play based program we aim to develop dispositions for learning such as enthusiasm, curiosity, persistence, confidence, optimism, cooperation and the ability to reflect. While the children are actively engaging in meaningful learning experiences at John Brotchie, the children are Becoming more capable, competent and confident learners.
