Will Will Rook Preschool

Will Will Rook Preschool is located next to a beautiful nature reserve in Glenroy, on Wurundjeri land, and is managed by the NSEYC. Will Will Rook Preschool runs a bush kindergarten program, which provides wonderful opportunities for children to learn in nature. Read this article on our bush kindergarten program to find out more about the many benefits of nature pedagogy for children. The kindergarten provides a high quality program and was recently assessed as ‘Exceeding‘ the National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education and Care (in mid 2021).

Our purpose is to Love a Life of Learning and Living. Our values are Trust, Respect, Relationships and Curiosity, and these values inform everything we do. We specialise in delivering high-quality early learning programs in close partnership with families, schools and the broader community, as we know this has enormous benefits for children’s lifelong learning. Our educational philosophy includes a focus on authentic relationships to support individual children’s wellbeing and development, with a strong emphasis on learning through play in nature.
