Welcome to Mitcham Preschool Centre

Children playing at Mitcham Preschool Centre

Mitcham Preschool Centre is nestled away in the leafy surrounds of the Mitcham Community Court, just off Belair Rd, Hawthorn.

The kindergarten is adjacent to a beautiful park and the Mitcham Library with the centre hosting plenty of safe off-road parking.

There is "room to move" at Mitcham Preschool, with large outdoor play spaces for the children and spacious areas throughout our beautiful heritage-listed building.

At Mitcham Preschool, we offer a high quality, educational, play-based program with an inquiry based approach to learning that follows the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) "Being, Belonging and Becoming".

In particular, we pride ourselves on delivering a strong literacy and numeracy focus, an extensive motor coordination program, strong commitments to healthy eating and physical activity programs, and a dedication to communication and collaboration with parents and carers.
