Toormina community preschool was established in 1976 by a group of dedicated families who wanted to create a nurturing, educational environment for local preschoolers.

The preschool has grown significantly in its 41 year history, and to meet the needs of its growing population, has undertaken several renovations. Currently we are in the process of enhancing our indoor play space by extending the building to add another room. This room will provide opportunities for educators to work in smaller groups with children and to also increase our parent support programs. Our natural outdoor environment has also grown with us and we now have many established trees and gardens to create natural shade and play spaces. Our recent construction of a new sandpit, decking and river bed has enhanced our outdoor areas and provided children with further areas to explore and play.

We are proud to acknowledge the committed staff, committee members and families who have supported the preschool over the years. During our 41years of operation we have seen five dedicated director’s, who have lead teams of educators in creating an environment of learning and fun. As a testament to our success we now have generations of families returning with their grandchildren and children.

The preschool continues to grow as we implement current practices and trends so that the children and families of Toormina/Sawtell and the surrounding suburbs receive the standard of high quality education and care they deserve.
