About Us

We believe in an enjoyment of learning through active exploration, child initiated play and experiences, while building strong, positive relationships with others.

We nurture those essential skills required for successful transition to formal education and support children’s unique individual needs and strengths while promoting inclusion for all.

Orana is 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. (When closed, there are no fees payable.)

 

We are really excited to share with you that following our  inspection in 2020, we received an overall rating of Exceeding!!!!What does this mean? Exceeding National Quality Standard – Service goes beyond the requirements of the National Quality Standard in at least four of the seven quality areas.
