About us

About us

Holsworthy Preschool is a not-for-profit provider of early childhood education, funded by the Department of Education and Communities. Our Curriculum is provided to children between 3 and 6 years of age, with our hours of operation from 8.15am - 3.45pm during NSW school terms.

Parental participation is at the heart of everything we do, the preschool itself being run by the parent management committee, made up of members of the school community and an approved legal representative of the Department of Education and Communities.

I have worked in Early Years education for over 20 years, I’m an Early Childhood Teacher with a BA Honours Degree in Early Years Teaching. I love building relationships with children and supporting their learning through a wide range of experiences but especially art, literacy and sensory play that incorporates numeracy and developmental skills that ignite the children’s interest in learning. I believe the Early Years are so important in a child’s development and that it should be built on a foundation of learning through play and following the children’s own interests. I also feel that positive relationships with both children and parents are key to successful outcomes.

Faith/certificate 3 Trainee

I am Holsworthy's new trainee. My love for children is stemmed from my upbringing and wholesome experience which has shaped the way I carry myself as a role model for them. My heart is definitely wherever children are for they know how to make me smile, how to challenge me and keep me on my toes all the time. I am passionate about helping others and learning with and about children. My passion of helping others and love of children is not only a privilege but a constant reminder of how great diversity is in this world.
