KU Ashmont Preschool
At our service, childhood is celebrated. When they play and explore, children's imagination and curiosity is sparked – they enjoy learning and are inspired to continue learning more.
We offer a high quality program, with emphasis on the importance of relationships with children and their families. These relationships help children feel secure, which free them to explore, play and learn.
Our qualified and experienced educators are dedicated to enriching children’s learning through play-based and intentional teaching in collaboration with children, families and members of the community to ensure we have a challenging and inviting environment.
We offer children the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of learning experiences and activities, each specifically designed to promote children’s confidence as capable, active participants in their own learning.

KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre is yet to be rated under the National Quality Standards.
We are committed to the provision of quality education and care. As part of this commitment, we have established policies and practices designed to ensure that the centre complies with the legislated National Quality Framework.
Each KU centre is unique. The best outcomes for children are created within relationships and interactions between children and staff, and children and their families, not within four walls. We work hard to create beautiful, interesting, homelike learning environments for children – whatever our setting.
KU Ashmont Preschool and Family Centre opened in 2020, following a period of renovation and rejuvenation. We recognise the need for natural and constructed environments, both indoors and outdoors, and the importance of open-ended spaces that provide opportunities for interaction, spontaneity, risk taking, exploration, discovery and connection with nature.
Our playground is designed to maximise the use of the natural environment and allow children to play and explore as they would in their own backyard. We offer stimulating activities that arouse children’s curiosity and encourage them to choose from a variety of planned experiences, expanding their learning potential.
