Centre Facilities

At Cummins Preschool and Rural Care we are continually striving to improve. Using our Quality Improvement Plan, which is developed in consultation with parents and staff, we seek to enhance the learning opportunities for our children. Recently we have improved our playground as we work toward meeting National Quality Standards. We are also extending our building so we can increase Rural Care facilities, improving our car park, Preschool entrance and play space, ramps, adding another children's toilet and working in our garden areas.

Our centre offers:

Preschool for children who are 4 years old prior the 1st May. We offer a weekly Pre entry session in 4th term for children beginning preschool the following year.

Preschool children are able to use the school bus if seats are available.

Rural Care for children from 6 weeks to Year 7. Rural Care operates 8am to 6pm five days a week for fifty weeks per year. Bookings are made by phoning 8676 2508.

Playgroup every Friday (weeks 1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11). The playgroup is run by a playgroup leader. Please contact us for details 8676 2272
