Acknowledgement of Country

Singleton Heights Pre-school would like to

acknowledge the Wanaruah people, who are

the Traditional Custodians of this land.  We would

also like to pay respect to the Elders and children

past, present and future, for they hold the

memories, stories, traditions, the culture and the

hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We acknowledge the thousands of years of

learning that has taken place on this land. Just as

the land survives, so does the culture, heritage

and spirit of the Wanaruah people.

                   

Our current assessment through the

Department of Education and Communities

rates our centre as “Excellent” the National

Quality Standards.

Singleton Heights Pre-School

The pre-school has four classrooms, providing education and care for 80 children per day, aged 3 - 6 years of age. We are committed to the education and development of all children, including those with additional needs, individual health needs and from diverse cultural backgrounds.

The pre-school is open between 8.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday, with children attending between 8.30am and 4.00pm, during school terms.

Fees are currently $29.00 per day, with cheaper fees available for families who have a low income health care card or who have Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander heritage.

The centre is committed to providing a service and level of education which is of high quality and in accordance with the National Quality Framework of Australia. This ensures the quality of:

  • educational program and practice
  • children’s health and safety
  • the physical environment
  • staffing arrangements
  • the collaborative partnerships with families and community
  • leadership, and
  • service management.

We are a “SunSmart" Centre.

The centre maintains links to the local community and outlying areas through visits from local community groups and excursions to places of interest. A partnership with Glencore Ravensworth Open Cut Mine has the children engaged in caring for seedlings the service grows for the mine to use in its rehabilitation program.


On Thursday 29th April we had a visit from Sarah Mitchell the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning, Upper Hunter Nationals candidate, David Layzell and George Souris who was the President of the committee that fundraised and built the Pre-School.

Sarah has visited several times in recent years to talk about the addition of the classroom and other State Government funded projects and was last with us when we only had a slab for the 4th room.

‘I have been fortunate enough to visit this preschool a number of times over the years, and I am always blown away by their passion and dedication to early childhood education.’ – Sarah Mitchell

‘Fantastic team of dedicated educators providing great opportunities for local kids and making sure the future of Singleton is in safe hands.’ – Dave Layzell
