Welcome to Gymea Community Preschool

Our Preschool was established in 1946 and we have a proud tradition of quality Early Childhood Education spanning nearly 70 years in the Shire.

We are licensed for 3–5 year old children and offer 60 positions a day in 3 airconditioned classrooms.

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our families, in 2007 our new Preschool building was completed and in 2011, we were able to upgrade our extensive garden and install interactive white boards in each classroom.

Gymea Community Preschool is a beautifully equipped learning environment for the children in our care.

As a Community based Preschool we value our collaborative partnerships with our families and the broader Community. We love to include them in activities throughout the year such as Easter Celebrations, Mother’s morning, Father’s mornings, Grandparent’s Morning Tea, Biggest Morning Tea, parent Morning Rosters, transition to School Visits and Christmas Concerts in December. You are invited to join us to share in your child’s learning.

Learning Environments

Children learn best when they are engaged, intrigued and inspired by their environment. Our staff ensure that they establish a strong relationship with each child and understand their interests and learning needs.
