About Us

Our Preschool is a three unit community based, not for profit, preschool licensed for 60 children per day, offering early childhood education for 120 children in the 3 – 5 year old age group over a 5 day week. The present Jacaranda building was purchased by the community, after a fundraising ball, and placed on land donated by Sutherland Shire Council in 1952. Jacaranda continues to receive the support of Sutherland Shire Council as the landlord of the building. Extensive building and playground renovations provided through parent building fund donations, fundraising and community grants have ensured that Jacaranda is a safe, happy, nurturing and evolving environment.

“My daughter has just finished at Jacaranda and has had a seamless transition to ‘big school’. I’ve been consistently impressed by the level of care, support & education at Jacaranda Preschool – it has a great community feel, a high teacher to child ratio and focus on individual children. My daughter has thrived there & I look forward to my son starting in 2016.” Sarah, Caringbah Sth

“Thank you for all the care and affection you have given Livia and Thomas during their time with you. From the start, they both loved Jacaranda and blossomed during their time there. We are vey sad to have to shorten Livia’s Jacaranda Journey, but such is life!

We have been truly provileged to find you and have had complete confidence in the preschool from day 1. You are all wonderful, the teacher, carers, everybody exudes calm confidence and an enjoyment of their work. This is a rare thing in childcare, or anywhere!

Thank you for playing such an important part in sending Thomas and Livia on a happy and confident journey in life!”
