About our school

John Brotchie Nursery School is a Department of Education school providing an educational program for children the year before they attend school.

John Brotchie is a unique preschool that provides large indoor classrooms and a huge outdoor garden. Our award winning garden provides many and varied opportunities for the children to connect with nature, create and imagine, grow veggies and care for our animals. Our indoor classrooms provide a wide variety of curriculum options, in well organised and resourced learning spaces.

At John Brotchie we have qualified experienced early childhood teachers and support staff. We provide many extra curricular programs to supplement our daily educational program.

We pride ourselves on providing a preschool program that is innovative and reflects current research. Our program is based on the principals and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework.

Our philosophy is based on:

  • building and nurturing strong relationships with children and families
  • providing a play based curriculum that is based on the interests of the children as well as stimulating, challenging and meaningful
  • providing a balanced curriculum that values learning both inside and out
  • supporting our children to become capable, confident and creative learners for the 21st century
  • supporting children and families for transition to school.
