Get to know our Yanchep Preschool Centre
Hello Preschool Families!
Welcome to Atlantis Preschool in Yanchep. We are a Centre renowned for our School Readiness Program for 2½ to 5 year olds, our commitment to the children in our care, our dedicated long-serving staff and our community involvement.
We provide a boutique experience with modern facilities and natural, engaging play spaces with a small, dedicated team that have worked together for the past four years. We are currently rated Exceeding, which is the best you can get, so please read on and let us tell you why Atlantis Preschool is the perfect place for your little one.
Why choose us?
Our learning program is inspired by Reggio Emilia and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), with a curriculum that is play-based, and designed to build upon your child’s natural curiosity and interests.
By utilising your child’s strengths, skills and knowledge, they remain fully engaged and motivated to learn, reaching their full potential and gaining important life skills that will remain with them throughout their schooling life.
What our Preschool Yanchep Centre offers you
We understand how difficult it can be to leave your children in care and the many challenges modern parenting brings, so we spend a lot of time and attention in making this a smooth and pleasant experience for both yourself and your precious little one alike. In addition to our award-winning care, we offer:
- Family Workshops and Seminars on important topics
- A Community Shop, to assist you with anything and everything you may need or have forgotten to pack (it happens), as well as ready-made, nutritious meals for families on Friday evenings to help you at the end of a long week
- Regular and consistent communication via our Facebook Page, Parent Evenings and emails
- Access to the Atlantis Parent App – providing secure, real time updates on your child’s care room throughout the day so you feel in-touch and up-to-date
What makes our Preschool Centre special?
Other than a genuinely nurturing environment, we also provide many diverse activities and incursions to keep your child actively learning and engaged. We visit the Yanchep National Park on a twice-weekly basis to encourage that all-important connection to the outdoor world and pop-in to the Two Rocks Library to foster a love of reading and learning from an early age.
We also engage in the following activities for your child to focus on, should they show an interest:
- Outdoor Play
- Arts and Crafts
- Early Numeracy and Literacy
- Bush Bears
- Martial Arts
- Mixed Sports
- Community engagement
- Visits to RAAFA Merriwa on a monthly basis
A quick chat with your Coordinator Alison
Hi families, I am Alison, the Coordinator for Atlantis Preschool in Yanchep.
I have worked in Early Education and Care for the past 18-years and thoroughly enjoy building children’s confidence, knowledge and skills to enable them to grow holistically, whilst still providing a sound platform for their formal schooling years.
The best part of my job is having lots of fun with children and seeing their gorgeous smiles. I genuinely have too many great memories to list! I absolutely love seeing children I have taught out and about and am touched they still remember me, even though they’re in school, and I looked after them when they were babies.
My favourite activities are nature-based and revolve around kinetic learning and science experiments, like the exploding volcano! I feel honoured to be part of your children’s lives and look forward to hopefully meeting you soon.
You are about to make one of the most important decisions that you’ll ever have to make in your life as a parent, that of who you choose to look after your child.
At Atlantis you can be guaranteed that your child is in a caring and safe environment. We look forward to having the opportunity to show you around and for you to meet an outstanding team of individuals who respect each individual child and their needs.
It is our mission to provide a caring and safe learning environment where individual attention maximises and enriches the development and potential of children in their first journey through life.
