Adelong Preschool is a not-for-profit community based preschool which has been providing early learning education to the children of Adelong since the early 1980's.
During this time the preschool operated from various locations, venues which were shared with other community groups until 2012 when a purpose built Preschool building was constructed.
This Adelong Preschool Building was made possible through the Preschool Growth Program and government grants.

Adelong Preschool is a community based preschool. This means that parents, carers and the community are involved in the decision making process and are invited to be part of the management committee.
The Management Committee has a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Public Officer and other roles.
If we do not have parents or carers for these roles the preschool can not operate.
Involvement in the committee is a rewarding, challenging and social experience.
Parent meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 1pm at the Preschool. All parents are invited to attend.
The agenda for each of the meetings is placed on the entrance door before the meeting. All parents, carers are invited to add ideas or suggestions to be discussed at these meetings to the agenda.
If you don't attend these meetings you deny yourself the right and the unique opportunity of participating in the progress of your preschool and the ability to have vital input into the introduction of your child's formal education.
Try and get involved anyway you can it's worth it.
If you have any questions or would like to contact the preschool management committee please contact the preschool or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Adelong Preschool for 2023 has opted into the NSW Government Start Strong Free Preschool Program. This funding allows each child to attend Adelong Preschool for free. (subject to change in funding variations)
Please contact the preschool for the Fee Schedule. This is reviewed twice annually and changes are made when we are advised of our NSW Department of Education Funding. Our enrolment fee still stands and we ask families to help contribute to fundraising throughout the year.
There is no swapping of days, your child is enrolled for the days specified. If you require your child to attend on a different day please contact the staff to discuss.
All Adelong Preschool policies have been written and ratified in accordance with the Education and Care Services National Regulations and National Law 2010.
They allow for the smooth running of the preschool for parents, staff and children in accordance with consistent guidelines and procedures.
These policies are held at the Preschool, in the members area of the website and are avaliable for all members of the Preschool to read on request.
Adelong Preschool is currently using the Xplor Program as part of our preschool day to day management.
This program allows through the "home" app for parents to electronically sign their children in and out, receive notifications, observations, look at their account and complete bookings instantly. The Xplor Web allows for families to look at their child's individual program and goals.
The Educators use the Playground App and Web to complete the daily tasks as well as all of their programming, observations and reflections.
