Manor Park Playschool offers hands-on, nature-based learning in a calm and inclusive environment. Children are encouraged to be curious learners while exploring the world around them.  Through supportive and gentle guidance, our team offers both planned and spontaneous learning experiences to give your child the tools they need to succeed in kindergarten.
The Manor Park Community Centre is nestled in an environment of grassy lawns, treed parkland and preschooler-friendly play structures, making it the perfect home for the Manor Park Playschool. 

Our Playschool is run by an experienced Registered Early Childhood Educator and a Child Care Assistant.  All members of our Child Care team have clear vulnerable sector checks, First Aid/CPR and are fully vaccinated against Covid 19.

Preschool programming is offered from 9:00 am - 11:30 am.  Parents may choose two, three or five mornings per week for their child.  Fees are prepaid monthly by PAD (Pre-Authorized Debit).
