At Emanuel Woollahra Preschool, we share a vision that respects children as
valuable members of our community who are encouraged to positively contribute to it. Our program and practice educate, guide and nurture our children to reach their full potential – for success not just at school, but in life.

We pride ourselves on a holistic and responsive approach to children’s learning and development, with a focus on building their life skills, values and morals. We utilise play-based learning to best facilitate their interests through, collaboration, communication, exploration, problem-solving and creative thinking skills.


Our indoor and outdoor environments are stimulating, secure, invite discovery and promote inclusion and risky play. We encourage children’s independence, challenging them to build upon their strengths and extend their development. We believe children should engage with nature, respect the environment, and connect with the world around them.

We embrace our Jewish traditions with pride in who we are. We value the voices of our children, their families, educators, and the local community, which are reflected in our program and practice.


But most importantly, we do all of this with genuine warmth and care for each individual child and their families.
