3 Year Old Preschool

Eltham Woods Preschool offers a 3-year-old learning program to help children adjust into Early Childhood Education in a child-led and play-based manner.

Our 3-year-old preschool program is called the Copper Butterflies and offers 5.5 hours on a Friday 8:30am – 2:00pm.

At Eltham Woods Preschool we support children to play, create and explore at their own pace. We encourage extensive use of the outdoor environment and provide opportunities to make choices and be independent. We engage in music, dance, drama and sensory play and support children in sharing their discoveries with peers and adults.

“All of the evidence shows that two years of high-quality preschool is one of the best ways to amplify children’s learning and development.”
Dr Stacey Fox, Mitchell Institute, Victoria University
