Pedder Patter Pre-School
Early Learning Program
Our Early Learning program caters for children aged 4 and 5 and is run in the Early Learning facility at West Launceston Primary School. We deliver a fun and interesting play based program in a structured environment that helps prepare children for school. We also cater for Kindergarten children by providing a stimulating environment that differs to a traditional 3-5 year old room at a Child Care Centre. Our program is run by Georgie, a qualified Early Childhood teacher and Marlene, a Diploma qualified educator.
Spaces are filling up fast so please contact the office on 6344 9993 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about our program.

We aim to provide a child centred, play and inquiry based program that helps children become ready for school. Our program nurtures children to become independent learners as well as becoming socially, physically and academically confident. We use the Early Years Learning Framework to provide high quality education in an interesting, enjoyable and safe learning environment. We value family beliefs and learning practices and are always working to ensure a strong collaboration between home and Pre-School. We value close relationships with all children and families and build strong connections through quality interactions every day.
We endorse and embrace Pedder Patter Child Care’s Philosophy of values and beliefs.
