About Us

Nambucca Heads Preschool Playcentre today.

Managed by a wonderful parent committee

As a community owned, not for profit children’s service, a dedicated committee of parent volunteers manage and run our preschool. Our strategic planning works towards the future viability of our preschool, so all our funds are re-directed into the centre.


The result is a caring, child-focused and affordable preschool in the Nambucca Valley that welcomes families from all cultures and incomes, supports children of all abilities (particularly those with disabilities and special needs) and provides a program that encourages children to be themselves and develop at their own pace.

Nambucca Preschool is an affordable, not for profit community preschool, for children 2 – 5 years of age. It’s run by a team of highly qualified staff, and managed by a voluntary parent committee.


We’re known for quality education and for the warm, enduring bonds we form with every family who walk through our doors. Because caring for children, supporting their needs, and watching them thrive is our passion.


Your child’s well-being is our priority. Our team of experienced early childhood teachers and educators nurture your children and let them be themselves. So when your child comes to Nambucca Preschool , it’s like walking in to their second home.
