At Lancaster Preschool we run an indoor/outdoor program where children are given choice about where they play; when it comes to children’s learning we believe that the outdoor environment is equal to the indoor environment. For many children the outdoors sees them working more productively and constructively this also eases the pressure within the classroom including inappropriate behaviour. 

We pride ourselves on working as a close team in supporting and encouraging play and learning opportunities for the children in our care.

Play is the best way for preschool children to learn.

When children engage in meaningful, developmentally appropriate activities they are given the opportunity to participate and contribute; to express themselves and listen to others; to value themselves and others; and to become independent learners with the fundamental skills for future learning. 

At Lancaster we have friendly, highly qualified and experienced staff that provide a nurturing environment for your children at preschool. Our teaching staff members take pride in working as a team, each contributing a variety of educational ideas that your children will not only benefit from but will enjoy participating in.
