About us

We aim to immerse children in a safe environment where they feel comfortable using Spanish and English. We are passionate about what we do because we know how important it is for children to grow up with skills for life.

Spanish Australian Preschool (SAPS)

The Spanish Australian Preschool delivers the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) while providing children the opportunity to cement their knowledge of Spanish and English while travelling through their early years. We offer a holistic approach to education with experiences planned with the children at the centre of our program.The Spanish Australian Preschool is managed by Bilingual Schools Australia, who are a team of educators that work to deliver the Australian Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework to children in different languages.


We offer a cross-cultural curriculum which is fluid and progressive. It follows the Australian Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) practices and outcomes in English and Spanish.

The curriculum is planned and implemented in a balanced nature, arises from the children’s expressed interests, and considers each child’s stage of development. The children will take an active role in developing the curriculum together with the educators and their families. Our curriculum aims to allow the children to grow and develop their abilities to their maximum potential.

The teacher’s role supports the co-constructed curriculum to enhance learning through planning and interactions with children (intentional teaching) while encouraging, extending, and valuing children’s spontaneous learning.

Bilingual Programme

The Spanish Australian Preschool runs using inquiry and child-initiated projects

where activities do not happen in isolation.

This approach allows for creativity, imagination, skills, and knowledge to develop naturally.

The purpose-built environments provide materials and resources empowering young children to investigate, explore, imagine, and create play. In addition, our bilingual program ensures there are opportunities for planned and unplanned/play experiences, which will facilitate the individual child’s growth and provide learning situations in cooperation with their peers.

All programs are based on the teachers’ observations in consultation with families and community members. An individual educational program is developed

to respect individual abilities to maximise learning.

Relationship with families

Our program offers support to all families, creating opportunities for parents to further their knowledge and interest in child development. It also promotes and respects all cultures by fostering active communication, consultation and collaboration, building respectful relationships.

Respecting and understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their culture is also essential for building partnerships with our community.

Creative and Physical Activities

The preschool children benefit significantly from participating in physical movement sessions embedded in the programme, such as yoga and dance. Each session invites the children to expand their imagination and creativity using body movements. Our program is very creative and playful. The elements of yoga, rhythmic dance patterns, relaxation, and mindfulness are introduced

and presented in a fun and meaningful way to the group.

Environmental understanding

The program encourages children’s curiosity about the natural environment and respect for living things. Sustainability practices are highlighted through gardening, composting, recycling, and water conservation. Growing our plants and learning about fundamental skills of growing organic food, composting and recycling food scraps in the worm farm are some of the skills the children practise. Nature play is a big part of our curriculum.

Musical Education

Music education at a young age has profound and enduring positive effects on children’s emotional development. Music is a universal language that unites us all and assists us to master new skills. The program weaves art, dance, drama, music, and cultural expression into all aspects of the environment. Short duration programmes may also be offered throughout the year,

such as our 8 week Flamenco immersion in 2023.

Meals and food.

The focus of our menu is health, a balanced diet, and independence.

We use meals as an opportunity to teach children how to make good choices.

Age and ratio.

Our preschool offers a program for children aged 3 to 5 years, with a transition to kindergarten once their two years are complete. Although our ratio is dictated by the
NQS, we aim to exceed this and ensure children benefit from greater attention from our educators.
