About Our Preschool

The Lower Hunter Activity Van Association has been operating since 1979. As a service, we are committed to providing staff of the highest quality and experience. We strive, through our teamwork, toward creating a safe, caring and friendly environment, which will afford children the highest quality care with learning opportunities that allow them to develop at their own rate.

Hunter Mobile Preschool is a Not-for-Profit, Community Based Preschool Service. Being a Community Based Preschool means the preschool is managed by the parents whose children are attending the preschool at that time, strengthening the community’s investment in the service. As a Not-for-Profit Preschool, all money that comes in is put back into the preschool for the children. This is a requirement of the Department of Education and Communities. As we are not aiming to generate a profit, we can spend more on staffing, equipment and other resources benefitting every child that attends our service.

Programming is based on the needs of each individual, observed in each child through social, emotional, physical, intellectual and language development. Teaching occurs through organised play activities in the areas of the arts, crafts, manipulative play, constructive play, language, music, maths, science, drama and movement.

The Service caters for approximately twenty 3-6 year olds per day at each venue (dependant on the size and safety of the venues) and currently services 6 ‘remote’ areas, Gresford, Lochinvar, Millfield, Vacy, Wollombi and Gillieston Heights on a weekly basis.

Our fees are currently $32 per day
with a fee subsidy available for qualifying families.

 

As a State-funded and licensed Service we are bound by all legislation currently in operation, thus ensuring that the highest quality care and education is maintained through regular and adequate funding and accountability.
