Hamilton Community Pre-School acknowledges the Awabakal people who are the traditional custodians of this land. Hamilton Community Pre-School would also like to pay respect to the elders past, present and future and extend that respect to other Aboriginals present.

Hamilton Community Pre-School is a community-based, non-profit service and any profits made are channelled back into the service for the benefit of the children. The Pre-School is run by the community. We provide high quality care and learning opportunities for children aged 3- 6 years, this is evident in our National Quality Standard overall rating which was meeting. We believe that all children need a caring, safe and stimulating learning environment to foster their individual development and interests.

We are licensed to care for 26 children per day, with 4 trained educators on the floor to guide and promote children’s learning.

The Pre-School is licensed and funded by the NSW Department of Education and Communities

              Child Protection

Hamilton Community Pre-School is a child safe service and have a responsibility to both the children placed in its care and their families to ensure that we provide the best care possible so that they are protected from the chance of child abuse.

Under the relevant legislation including Child Protection (Offender Registration) Act 2000, Child Protection (Working with Children) Act 2012, Children’s Guardian Act 2019 & Commission for Children and Young People Act 1998.

Early childhood services are required to ensure allegations of child abuse concerning children in their care are appropriately addressed. Under the Children's Guardian Act, and the Commission for Children and Young People Act 1998 numerous procedures are in place to identify and exclude, if necessary, all inappropriate persons from having contact with the children in care or from being employed in child care services.

These procedures apply to Hamilton Community Pre-School and were developed to provide a framework for the protection of the child and to clarify procedures for staff through a comprehensive Child Safety Code of Conduct which outlines inappropriate behaviours that must be reported on allegations and child abuse. This means that all educators at Hamilton Community Preschool by law are Mandatory Reporters and will report any child that is at risk of significant harm.

Testimonial

* Our daughter has thrived since starting at Hamilton Community Preschool. The educators are inclusive and create opportunities for learning that are far beyond the usual realm of standard childcare, with excursions to new and exciting places and a strong sense of community with the local school and businesses. The educators are nurturing and warm whilst maintaining such respect from the children and maintaining strong communication with the families at all times. My daughter is so excited for her “Preschool Days” as I’m sure are all the children who attend Hamilton Community Preschool.
