As the Centre Director at Princeton Pre-School, I (Alison Wade), have been the leader of our team since March 2015. I have held various roles within the Early Learning sector over the last 11 years. As a parent myself I understand the importance of quality care for children.

Princeton Pre-School offers a specialised 2-5 year old Junior Kindy program. The program allows for enriched development in the specific areas of language, literacy and mathematics. Our curriculum draws upon the Early Years Learning Framework, whilst maintaining an awareness of the Australian Curriculum. Specialised programs such as Happy Feet, Little Dragons and Italian lessons feature through the program. We employ aspects of Montessori practices and philosophy within our Centre. Children are supported to be independent learners and are given the guidance and scaffolding to be autonomous participants in daily tasks, explore their individual strengths and interests within our program and to care for our environment.

Princeton’s educators form meaningful and respectful relationships with all children and families. We welcome parents and members of our community to participate in enhancing our strong links within our local community. Our collaborative partnerships with our families and the broader community allow us to embrace our cultural differences and diversity.

The long-term staffing arrangements at Princeton Pre-School’s enhance the children’s learning and development through respectful and nurturing relationships. We view children as active participants in their own learning journey and provide experiences and opportunities that allow them to build their social competence and inspire their learning journey.

Our rooms are designed to stimulate engagement and to encourage exploration, creativity and imaginative play. We cater for all children’s interests – those who like to construct and create, children who love to dance and move and children who like to spend some quiet time reading and thinking in a peaceful environment.



Princeton Pre-School has for the second year been selected to participate in the ELSA (Early Learning STEM Australia) national pilot program for 2019. ELSA is a play-based digital learning program for children in preschool to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) practices. ELSA allows children to play, experiment and make sense of the world around them. Book your tour and join us on this incredible journey of learning and exploration as we grow young STEM thinkers for the future! Places are limited, click below or contact Centre Director Alison on 9207 3567.

Meet the TEAM

Alison has been the Centre Director at Princeton Pre-School for over 3.5 years, often seeing children begin as toddlers and waving them goodbye as they begin their pre-primary journey. The team is also led by a passionate and caring Early Childhood Teacher. Together with our team of highly qualified educators we are able to capture children’s joy, sense of wonder and discovery through activities and learning experiences that build the skills and concepts that lay the foundation for school readiness.
