Inner North Playschool is a licensed Playschool which provides early childhood education for three-four year-old children in North Canberra. Our aim is to enrich the child’s development in a safe and nurturing environment while having fun.

Parents leave their children at Playschool in the care of trained and experienced staff, where they will participate in a mix of free and directed activities. The program is designed to introduce an environment where a simple routine is in place. It does not try to emulate Preschool education but at the same time provides more for the children than would a Playgroup. It is hoped that Playschool will ease the transition to Preschool.


Margie Frawley has been the Director and Teacher-in-Charge of the Inner North Playschool since 2004. She was joined in 2018 by Kerrin Gordon, who is currently working to complete her Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care. Over the past 14 years Margie and her team have worked to make Inner North Playschool one of the very best schools in its field, focusing their time to develop structured play, free-time play and most importantly teaching each class through love and support.

Margie and Kerrin are highly passionate women who develop and nurture the children to their full potential. Most importantly, their goal is to ensure the Playschool is a safe, inclusive and enjoyable environment.
