Our educational programs incorporate the National Early Years Learning Framework: Being, Belonging and Becoming, with a strong emphasis on inclusive, play based strategies.Children at Highmount Preschool enjoy both indoor and outdoor play elements, with purpose built spaces and structure to promote socialisation, imaginative play and physical activity.
