Our Vision

  • Is for all children and families to feel that they belong at Port Lincoln Children’s Centre
  • To have reciprocal relationships based on respect and trust
  • To have a connection with the Aboriginal community

Our Mission

  • Is to provide a safe affordable environment that enables children to challenge their capabilities
  • To maintain excellence in Early Education and Care
  • For children to experience:
    • Belonging – knowing where and with whom they belong
    • Being – time to seek meaning of their world
    • Becoming – developing identities, knowledge, understanding, skills and relationships

Our Catchment Area

Our preschool has a catchment area. If you live in the catchment area, your child will usually be able to enrol at our preschool. If you don’t, your child might still be able to enrol, but only if there are enough places.
