INTENTIONAL TEACHING THAT MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE

My daughter has really flown in her learning since she started here at Bottle Lake Preschool. This growth can be directly related to the relationship she has with her teachers across the centre. I feel that all staff know her well, they understand how she thinks and reacts to different situations and use this to gently encourage her to keeping growing. The transition across the areas is fantastic and personalised to meet the needs of not only the children but that of their families also. This is a fantastic centre where everyone knows your name and you feel very much a part of it's community.

Such an amazing place! We started our son in the preschool room when he was 3 years old, after two years at in home care. It was the best move we made. The transition they organised was fantastic and set him up for success for his first full day. They staff were so welcoming to not only him, but us. Within a short period of time they really knew our son and he had built strong relationships with them and students. After 7 months he transitioned into the kindy room and yet again, they made sure he was comfortable with regular visits before he began full time, and yet again the staff made him feel so welcome and tuned straight in on his needs and interests. I would highly recommend anyone to call in here for a visit if they are interested in their child attending.
