Community Preschool in Wallsend


We wish to welcome you to our Centre!  Orana Preschool is a not for profit community based preschool. We believe in an enjoyment of learning through active exploration, child initiated play and experiences, and strong, positive relationships with others in holistic practices that support and promote the essential skills required for smooth transition to formal education. We acknowledge that all children are unique individuals with their own needs, interests and strengths. All children are given equal opportunities inclusive of gender, culture and socioeconomic background. We recognize that children’s’ voices are the most important part of our program.

Orana is a community based preschool. We are licensed by the Department of Early Childhood Education and Care for 29 children per day, offering full day sessions for children aged three years up to starting school. We are open Monday to Friday, during school terms. The preschool is closed on all public holidays and school holidays.
