Our Program and Approach

At KU Revesby, we aim to provide a learning environment where children feel confident in building relationships with peers and adults, and are active participants in their learning throughout the day.

We are proud of our reputation within the local community of providing rich education and care that concentrates on individual children in a family-focussed and supportive way.

Our centre is a welcoming and nurturing space where each child is immersed in a rich tapestry of educationally interactive experiences – a space where children are supported to be their own, unique selves, growing and developing a sense of belonging and empowerment.

Our program offers 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. Children are presented with a range of activities including gardening, arts and crafts, music and movement, physical play, block building, sand and water play, science experiments, early numeracy activities such as counting and measurement, and early literacy activities such as reading, drawing and writing.

We have a transition to school program that focuses on the children’s social and emotional development and capabilities to become passionate life-long learners, through experiences that give them the skills to enter school in a positive and confident way.

We encourage family participation at the centre, acknowledging that each family has the opportunity to build partnerships with the preschool by sharing skills, time and feedback with the staff and children, bringing your family into the life of our centre.

Our Specialisation

In addition to the high quality well-rounded programs we offer, all KU centres are also encouraged to develop an area of specialisation.

At KU Revesby, our special specialisation is sustainability and the natural environment.

We incorporate this into our program through activities such as gardening, caring for our environment and scientific exploration of the natural world.

We feel that the children benefit from this specialisation because they are the future carers of our world and need to be given the opportunities to explore, reflect and discover the natural world around them through play experiences and intentional teaching.

Our Quality

Our centre has been independently assessed by the Department of Education NSW under the National Quality Standards, and are proud to be rated as Exceeding the National Quality Standard.

However what matters most is what our families think...

“My children have been attending KU Revesby Preschool for several years now and I cannot fault them! The staff are warm, friendly and engaging and my children have flourished in their care. Each day I hear wonderful stories from both the carers and my children about the exciting things they have done and new things they have learnt and experienced while at Preschool! Our children love attending KU Revesby and we highly recommend the centre and its fantastic staff!” - KU Revesby Parent

“Our family loves KU Revesby. It is a warm, caring and safe environment. My daughter has enjoyed every moment.” - KU Revesby Parent

Our Environment

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 Revesby is a preschool service located in Revesby, catering for 20 children a day. There are large open spaces that are well-designed and a shady playground in a natural, landscaped setting. Our building has air-conditioning, with two large playrooms containing a wide and diverse range of resources that encourage play based discovery and learning.

Our playground is designed to allow children to explore nature and discover the natural environment. We want children to be able to dig in the mud, climb trees, discover and learn about insects and enjoy connecting with nature. The many activities we offer enable children to immerse themselves in the natural elements of their surroundings and feel inspired to create, imagine and play.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan

KU was proud to launch its inaugural Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in 2016. At KU Revesby, we began our journey to develop our centre’s RAP in 2018 and we are proud to launch it now. Please view it here.

The daily fees for 2019 at KU Revesby Preschool are:

  • Start Strong Fee: $34
  • Unfunded Fee: $63

Which fee will you pay?

Start Strong Fee

The NSW Government provides preschool funding, called Start Strong funding. This funding is to be directed towards children in the year before they are eligible to start school (four and five year olds) who are enrolled in a preschool program for 15 hours per week. Across KU Preschools, the ‘15 hours’ is met by enrolling in two x 7.5 hour days per week.

Start Strong funding is then passed on as a fee reduction for those 15 hours, with the Start Strong fee then applied to all four and five year old children enrolled for two days (15 hours) per week.

The NSW Department of Education requires parents to sign the ‘Consent to use and disclosure of personal information’ form at the time of enrolment (see KU’s Standard Terms for the Enrolment of Children, p.4). Your eligibility for Start Strong Funding is conditional upon signing this form.

Unfunded Fee

The Unfunded Fee is charged when:

  • Children are three years old
  • Children are four or five years old who:
    • Only attend one day per week (less than 15 hours); or
    • Attend more than two days (15 hours) per week – you will pay the Start Strong Fee for the first two days, then the Unfunded Daily Fee for each day after that.

Is there a discounted 3-year-old fee?

You may have seen media reports that the NSW Government is extending Start Strong funding to three year olds in 2019. Whilst funding for three year olds will be less than for older children, it is still very welcome news.

The NSW Government will release that funding mid-2019. We look forward to being able to pass this funding on to families as discounted fees at that time. Until then, families of three year old children will be charged the Unfunded Fee.

Are you a Health Care Card holder?

If you hold a Health Care Card, you may be entitled to a further discount on your preschool fees. Please speak with the Preschool Director further about this.
