Who We Are


 At Newcastle Community Preschool we respect and embrace the Awabakal people of this region as the traditional custodians and cultural knowledge holders of this land on which the preschool stands.



Newcastle Community Preschool is a lovely 20 place a day preschool that is located in the heart of Newcastle CBD, with access to a wide variety of exciting community places to visit at our doorstep.

Newcastle Community Preschool is a not-for-profit organisation, which is run by a wonderful parent/community management committee. 

Our homely indoor environment and outdoor play space are filled with an abundance of opportunities for the children to investigate, inquire, hypothesise, experiment, explore, question, take risks and collaborate. We offer a rich, play based curriculum that builds on children's strengths allowing them to express themselves as individuals and flourish as learners.

So far we've had two of our children attend NCP, and anxiously await the time our third child will attend. We could not hope for a better place for our children to thrive and learn in such a supported and loving environment. Our children have been encouraged to be themselves and to explore and learn their worlds. The educators truly know each child, their likes and dislikes and encourages their learning in a way that works for them as individuals. The educators provide stability for the children as there is no high staff turnover. There is a real sense of familiarity and comfort and we feel reassured our children are safe, respected and getting the most out of their time at preschool. The children's joy and smiles at the end of each day and their keenness to get there each morning are a testament to the environment of NCP. The real sense of community is also something truly special about NCP, it feels like family. We're forever thankful to the beautiful educators for the special space they've created and feel truly lucky to have our children be part of such a beautiful community for learning and thriving in their early years.
