Strong starts with Koori Preschool

Koori Preschool provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children aged 3 to 5 years in the ACT with a play-based, culturally safe learning program aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework. Each Koori Preschool provides 15 hours of government-funded preschool per week.

We want to wish all our first-time and returning Koori Preschool students a safe and fun start to their schooling years. We’re excited to see this next generation take their first steps in their education, like little Astrid with her big sissy who graduated Koori Preschool in 2022.
