Discover the four elements that shape our educational program.
Our preschool was first established in the 1970s and our new centre was purpose-built in 2005. It is a modern, light-filled space which encourages successful learning, confidence and a sense of belonging.
At SDN Batemans Bay each child benefits from a creative, play-based, child-focused curriculum developed by our trained early childhood educators. Our educators get to know your child’s interests and they create a learning program that nurtures and extends upon these. We also offer a school transition program as part of our preschool program. You can learn more about our educational program here.
Our families say…
“I love that the staff have made my child feel so valuable, so accepted and so curious to learn so much.”
“My son absolutely loves preschool, he is so comfortable there, loves his teachers and has learnt a lot about how to respect and behave towards other children.”
The Batemans Bay area is part of the Yuin Nation and the traditional owners of the land are the Walbunja People. Captain James Cook named the town Batemans Bay in 1770.
Batemans Bay Preschool Kindergarten opened in 1975 in Herarde Street after a local resident recognised the need for early years education. Bateman’s Bay joined the SDN family in 1999 after SDN Children’s Services was invited to assume management. The preschool relocated to a modern, purpose-built centre at 1a Melaleuca Crescent in 2005.
Since its beginnings, SDN Batemans Bay Preschool has reflected a strong connection with local families, and supported SDN's vision and commitment to enhancing the wellbeing and development of all children.
