Welcome to Burch Family Memorial Preschool, where we aim to always provide a happy, safe, emotionally and socially enriching environment that nurtures the development of the whole child.
Our kindergarten has been supporting the communities of Wonga Park, Warrandyte South, Warranwood, Croydon Hills, Warrandyte, Chirnside Park and surrounding areas for more than four decades. We celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2014.
Our 2017 kinder program offers 3-year-old and 4-year-old classes, with the 4-year-old program offering 15 hours held across 3 days. Please contact us for available places in our 2017 program.
Applications for enrolment for 2018/2019 are now open.
