Introduction

The Inner North Playschool is a licensed playschool that provides early childhood education for three and four year-old children. Located in North Canberra, our aim is to enrich each child’s development in a safe and nurturing environment while having fun.

Parents can leave their children at the playschool knowing that they are in the care of trained and experienced staff, where they will participate in a mix of free and directed activities. Our 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 structure than a playgroup to ease the transition to preschool.
