Welcome to Burch Family Memorial Preschool, where we aim to 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 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 and enrolments.
Applications for our four-year-old, three-year-old and activity groups in 2018/2019 are now open. Take a look at our new 2018 timetable!
Join us for our Oaks Day luncheon at beautiful Vue on Halcyon on Thursday 9th November, 2017. Our annual fundraiser promises to be a great day out!
