KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre
KU is excited to announce the opening of KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre (formerly Ashmont Preschool) in 2020, following a period of renovation and rejuvenation.
KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre will deliver an integrated service model providing the best opportunity to positively respond to the needs of the community and provide additional beneficial services for children and families.
The service will include:
- A high quality preschool program for children aged 3-6 years
- A range of preschool age-specific Allied Health and NDIS services that will be rolled out over the coming months based on community needs

May 2020 Update
We are pleased to share that we are very close to completing the renovations for KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have experienced some delays and as a result, we anticipate that the preschool will open at the beginning of Term 3, 2020.
About KU Preschool Programs
Preschool children are at a time in their lives where they are gaining independence and becoming more confident as individuals, interacting with people, materials and each other to help them make sense of the world around them.
The skills children develop in a KU preschool program can positively shape the way they approach learning for the rest of their lives. We work with children in collaboration with their families and alongside the community to encourage children to develop positive relationships and connections.
Through play, children are provided with a wide variety of learning experiences that build on their interests and promote their learning through exploration, discovering new concepts, how to take risks, perseverance, caring for others and the environment as well as learning early foundation literacy (reading, drawing and writing) and numeracy skills (counting, sorting and measuring) – experiences that will lay the foundations for children to make a smooth transition to school.

KU is excited to be introducing our new Allied Health Program at KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre.
