Principal Message

Welcome to Narrabundah Early Childhood School, a unique and innovative setting designed to support the learning and development of your child and their families from pre-birth to Year 2. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our school community. Our motto is ‘Learning excellence’ and our program focuses on meeting the diverse needs of every child. We provide rich learning environments that cater for all learning styles and enable every child to be successful and reach their potential as lifelong learners. We have high expectations and our programs provide intellectually stimulating experiences that challenge thinking, encourage inquiry learning and promote independence. A significant emphasis is placed on social and emotional learning and providing our children with strong foundations in literacy and numeracy. Our school is a safe and happy place where children and their families are valued and nurtured.

At NECS we support a community of learners and we grow a culture of belief, acceptance and trust. Families that are part of our community have access to a breadth of programs and services unique to our early childhood school model: government schooling; community child care; maternal and child health services; family support agencies and programs. We provide a community of experts dedicated to enhancing the holistic wellbeing of children and their families through nurturing and respectful relationships. Our educational program for Preschool to Year 2 brings together expert knowledge about early childhood education in the way we implement local and national curriculum frameworks. We believe all children have a right to be respected, to be valued and to have access to meaningful programs to support their learning. Community activities and parent education and engagement are integral components of the school. We have a dedicated Community Coordinator who facilitates the delivery of programs. When you enrol at NECS you will quickly become part of a community that values diversity, encourages conversations and promotes positive relationships as the foundation of learning.

We look forward to working in close partnership with you as we share and celebrate each stage of your child’s learning.
