Our Preschool

North Ainslie North Ainslie Primary School (NAPS) is an authorised International Baccalaureate World School offering the Primary Years Program (IB PYP). We strive to provide a program where 'hearts meet minds' and to produce global learners who make a difference in the world.

North Ainslie Preschool Philosophy Statement

The North Ainslie Preschool unit philosophy builds upon our school's vision statement, incorporating the principles and practice from both the Primary Years Program and from Early Years Learning Framework.

We build secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships with all members of the community. We strive for high expectations and equity for all. We have respect for diversity in our learning community.

We enhance the learning and development of all children by engaging in ongoing learning and reflective practice. At our preschool, the educators continually develop our professional knowledge and skills to enable us to provide the best possible learning and development opportunities for all children. We promote practices that have been shown to be successful in supporting children's learning and development. Ongoing assessment of the children's development is used to refine and develop the educational program.

Children need to feel secure and happy as they learn and develop confidence within themselves and the preschool environment. We aim to excite and ignite a lifelong love of learning through a fun and engaging educational program.
