Welcome to Birrahlee Preschool

Birrahlee Preschool Lane Cove has been providing preschool education to the Lane Cove community since 1958. As a community-based not-for-profit organisation, we aim to provide valuable initial experiences and guidance to preschool children aged 3–5 in a safe, friendly and happy environment.

We provide two-day (Monday & Tuesday or Thursday & Friday) and three-day (Monday to Wednesday or Wednesday to Friday) programmes, which offer a wide range of stimulating activities within the security of a daily routine.

The general and specific needs of the children are included in the programme, embracing their social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs. This is achieved in a warm, caring environment.
