Our Preschool

Pinewood Preschool extends a warm welcome to all preschool children, their parents or guardians and prospective families. The warm, caring and friendly Pinewood Preschool community will ensure that you and your children will be happy, feel safe and have an enjoyable experience while attending our preschool.

Pinewood Preschool is a community kindergarten offering  4 year old preschool programs and 3 year old preschool programs to over one hundred families within the Monash municipality. The preschool is conveniently situated on Pinewood Drive, Mount Waverley, and offers children a bright and inviting opportunity for exploration and discovery in a natural environment and picturesque setting. The preschool is managed by a Committee of Management, made up of volunteer parents, and we encourage active participation across all areas of the preschool’s operations.

At Pinewood Preschool, we believe that young children learn best through play based experiences and are capable and resourceful learners, who actively contribute, initiate and explore their interests and ideas. We promote each child’s confidence and positive self-image through a range of provisions, experiences and opportunities that build upon their understandings, skills, values and sensitivities and promote success.

We value the importance of positive and trusting relationships, and believe this helps to build the foundations for a love of learning, respect and tolerance. This will assist in making your child’s next step in their learning journey a relaxed and enjoyable one.     


 'The city of Monash owns the buildings on the land upon which the kindergarten is located. We acknowledge the support of the City of Monash in the delivery of Early Years Education within our community.'


'Pinewood preschool ackowledges the traditional owners of this land and recognises their continuing connection to the land and waterways. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend this to all  First Nations People.'


Committee of Management

The Committee of Management is made up of members of the association (parents or other interested community members) and is elected during the AGM, which is held in November each year.

The Committee of Management is responsible for the smooth running of the preschool, meeting all the legal requirements and regulations as necessary, issuing annual reports and fundraising.

Without the dedication and hard work of those volunteering to each of the positions, the preschool would not operate. Whilst participation can be demanding at times, the rewards are great and a great deal can be achieved when the team pulls together. Maximum participation by the Committee leaves the educators free to concentrate on the children we entrust to their care.
