Home - Houghton Preschool

We work in partnership with Mini Explorers playgroup and Paracombe Primary School to provide a unique learning environment for children. We encourage children’s interests and sense of identity and guide them in their successes and discoveries. Our program focuses on experiences in our local natural environment.

Houghton Preschool


If you’d like to volunteer with us, we’d love to hear from you. See volunteering in schools, preschools and children’s centres and have a chat to us about how you can get involved. 

We invite you to join the governing council, which meets twice a term to make sure the preschool runs smoothly. Read through what a governing council does and speak to us to register your interest.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land we are on and pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people who are present today.

Bushfire risk

On forecasted 'catastrophic' fire danger days we will be closed. Make sure you know how we intend to contact you in this situation. You can find more information about an active bushfire from the CFS website. ​​See our bushfire action plan and the bushfire page on the Department for Education's website for general information.
