Cust Preschool is a community of children, parents and teachers who want something special for their children as they begin their life long journey of learning

Cust Preschool is a place where.....

Children are actively involved in their learning and trusted for their inner potential and celebrated for who they are. They are valued for their meaningful work through purposeful play. Children feel safe and happy and are respected as individuals where their personalities are cherished. Children are given the time to experience the wonders of learning through play. They have fun!

Teachers are learners alongside children, our role is to observe, encourage, inspire and nurture – to teach children as they love to learn, through play. Teachers will delight in being with children, and will share in their moments of wonder and awe. Meaningful, responsive and respectful relationships are nurtured through positive interactions. Our teachers know your child and understand the small things are really the big things. Our teachers are valued for their knowledge, commitment and passion for children, their well being and learning.

Our Environment is a place of beauty where the stage is set for learning. The learning environment is rich and inviting, the atmosphere is warm and nurturing. Resources, equipment and activities are hands on. Children's minds, bodies, imagination, creativity and emotions develop through authentic learning experiences. The environment is predictable but allows for challenge and surprise.

Together with family we will enable the full potential of your child to emerge while fostering a love of learning, respect for others and a strong sense of self. Together we value each moment of the day and understand we are always learning.
