2014 marked the 50th year since Drysdale Pre-School first opened its doors to offer children an environment to explore, investigate, experiment and participate in shaping their own learning.
To celebrate this milestone, we are invited educators, families past & present to join in our festivities. There was fun for everyone with a variety of activities, a photo display covering the pasy fifty years, face painting, balloons, sausage sizzle and afternoon tea.
The first teacher and an assistant attended and had the opportunity to met up with several of the very first children to attend the kindergarten; Other educators who followed them over the past fifty years met together to help celebrate this momentous occassion and observe the many changes that have taken place since the kindergarten’s inception.

Program and Centre Features
At Drysdale Pre-School we believe that play is children’s work. It is something they choose to do and is an important tool for meaningful and sustainable learning in early childhood.
The Pre-School is a welcoming community place where educators will endeavour to develop family partnerships for the children’s education and well being, provide support and foster friendships.
Our aim is to:
- Create a warm, safe and secure environment where children feel supported and have fun. Children and families can develop a sense of belonging, feel connected to others, become effective communicators, feel valued and develop relationships
- Respect children as competent, capable and active participants in their learning, acknowledging individual interests, strengths and abilities, allowing them to be co-contributors in their learning
- Create an environment where children have the opportunities to explore, investigate, experiment and participate in shaping their own learning. We equally value the indoor and outdoor play space as a suitable and enabling environment for the development and wellbeing of the children
- Acknowledge families as the children’s first educators. Value and build on families knowledge of their children, recognising and responding to their specific and diverse needs
- Include families, the local community and services in learning activities, and engage with them to support children’s learning and development at home and in the community
- Staff will regularly reflect on their practice and remain current in early childhood theory and practice; to be active participators in continuing professional development to ensure that the learning of the children is effective
- Ensure that our practices and programs are ongoing, reflective, of high quality and meet the needs of the children and their families, whilst encompassing the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the National Framework (Belonging, Being and Becoming)
Set in the heart of town, Drysdale Pre-School is located at 1/25 Eversley Street, Drysdale. Next door to the Police Station.
