About Bowerbird

Bowerbird Preschool is set in leafy Carrum Downs; our centre has a large playground which allows for exploration and space to learn.

We believe that all children should have access to high-quality education and care in an environment that allows children to feel safe and secure.

The quality and commitment of our professional staff is an integral part of our centre and is reflected in our daily practices. We have a specific focus on play-based learning and recognise the importance of intentional teaching in the areas of social and emotional development and communication and language, including early literacy, numeracy and science.   We place a high emphasis on respect and believe that this respect should be shared between families, children and staff, as we all work together to achieve high outcomes for the children.  We believe in creating strong partnerships with families; children’s first and most important teachers.

Our kindergarten uses the National Early Years Learning Framework and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework to underpin our curriculum.
