Being outdoors and playing in nature teaches your child lifelong skills.

Our preschool is a happy, active, creative space – a place that is socially interactive, inclusive and fun.

The teaching team is passionate about the outdoors, encouraging children to investigate, explore and reflect in the natural outdoor play space at the centre. Children often get muddy, wet and sandy during the important business of play.

Your child will learn about and care for the gardens, including growing and harvesting fruit and vegetables, as well as caring for the kinder chickens.

Our nature play program helps your child develop social, emotional, physical, cognitive, language, and communication skills. We focus on themes of ‘looking after myself’, ‘looking after my friends’ and ‘looking after my environment’.

We help your child learn about their community through excursions and incursions including beach kinder.

Our indoor play areas are just as spacious with lots of different activity areas to explore, learn and play.

We strongly believe children should be supported to demonstrate self-awareness, confidence, family pride and positive social identities. At Ocean Grove Preschool cultural diversity is proudly embraced, promoted and valued.
