  1. To all parents in Northern parts of Perth WA, I would like feedback from anyone who is interested in a curriculum based Preschool in Northern Perth? I am a qualified primary school teacher and would like to open a new preschool near Joondalup. This would open for 2 year olds to 4 years olds. The proposed hours will be 9:00 – 11:30 or 12:00 – 2:30 or a full session from 9:00 – 4:30. The Preschool will be open for 48 weeks a year. I'm just looking at the general idea if there is a need in this area. So fees will be low as possible. I believe that play is essential in the lives of young children. My kindy program is play-based and references the “The Early Years Learning Framework”. I will create a safe environment to allow the children to develop their ability to apply their knowledge, skills and understanding independently. I believe that play is fun and exciting, enabling children to explore, solve problems and be hands on. At the kindergarten the program will be based around each individual child achieving at their own level at their own pace in a friendly, warm and vibrant setting. Please feel free to contact me and express your interest in attending the preschool. Linsey Williams

    Pre Kindy and Kindergarten anyone interested

    Yes I'm well aware. There is and quite rightly so lots of red tape. I have been a Family Day Educator in Australia and I currently work in education.

    Pre Kindy and Kindergarten anyone interested

    Hi thanks for asking. Yes the hours would be less and the ratio would be lower rather than higher than a daycare. So maybe I would look into opening for longer? I'm currently looking into converting part of the house to hiring a building. I guess this is my first base in asking questions and what parents need. Yes I would also look into providing CCR. The kindergarten would be small and so will be the ratio 5 - 1.

    I truly hope so! Think ur co sends an email t ur agent 1st. I'm hoping he/she is Workin on it now!! It's any day now Hun. Wen I logged in two wks ago I nearly passed out wi shock wen it said al the way throu applicants approved!! Agent phoned quite late on t tell me we had been granted! We r thinking of leaving so much behind now jus t fit in t smaller container! (750cubic) we hav 2 king size beds all can b flat packed we mgt even leave t settee! Been on eBay.au an it's quite cheap! Like u I want my sentimental things like pictures an my book shelves not bothered. U hav t b soooo ruthless wi ur stuff. We r also leavin all bikes apart from oh as it's new. They apparently box the bikes up so they take up room in t container!! Lots a luck xxxx
