Drysdale Preschool is excited to announce that we have moved into the brand new purpose built Bella Wiyn Birralee Family Centre on Palmerston Street, Drysdale. Bella Wiyn Birralee means “Bellarine Children” in the local Wadawarrung language.
Our kindergarten is a community place to foster friendships, support and encourage family participation. We recognise and respect that every family has individual and diverse needs.
At Drysdale Preschool we believe play is the basis of all future development. We aim to provide a warm, safe environment that provides the children with opportunities to explore, investigate, experiment and participate in shaping their own learning.
Through play and guided activities we aim to:
- Respect the uniqueness and potential of each child
- Enhance each child’s strengths, competence and self esteem
- Ensure that work with children is based on their interests, reflects consideration of each child’s perspectives and needs, and lets children know they have a contribution to make.
