High quality, innovative, inclusive care and education
KCPS rated EXCEEDING in all 7 quality areas of the National Quality Standard Framework
Keiraville Community Preschool (KCPS) is a not for profit preschool, providing high quality, family centered learning in the Illawarra, since 1952.
KCPS offers a stimulating learning environment with a focus on each child’s individual strengths, interests and unique potential.
Children have room to explore: we educate 40 children a day within a space that could hold more than 250. We believe all children deserve high quality, inclusive care and education.
“Something magical happens when children are given space to explore. Imaginations come alive, and the pace of play becomes slower, more relaxed. Our program balances structured learning and creative play throughout the day.”
