Transitioning your child from preschool to kindergarten in partnership with you
Alpha Street Preschool is a nurturing and stimulating child care centre in the heart of the Blacktown CBD. Our small, 20-place preschool, helps children form close bonds as they prepare for primary school. We welcome children from diverse backgrounds and cater for children of all abilities.
We work in partnership with you and your child to strengthen their learning and development. Our qualified educators motivate play-based learning, building on your child’s interests, strengths and needs. Our holistic approach to early education helps develop children’s social, emotional, physical, literacy and language skills which help shape their lifelong abilities.
We’re committed to embracing children’s cultural identities and integrate multi-cultural activities for all children to experience. Educators in our centres speak many languages including Auslan (sign language) – giving children a diverse education. Australia’s Indigenous heritage is important to us and we incorporate activities and resources to engage children in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
Our friendly educators encourage the children’s imagination to run wild whilst being guided by the developmental knowledge we know will combine play and learning in an individual style the children deserve.
The national Early Years Learning Framework guides our planning and recording of children’s learning. It best describes childhood as ‘a time of Belonging, Being and Becoming’ and we believe we provide these values each and every day. We are continually listening, watching and talking to your children to ensure we are on the right track.
Our natural and inviting outdoor playground gives children the chance to explore our environment and work together in social play and the indoor playroom inspires creativity in a fun learning environment.
We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming home-away-from-home that is fun, caring, safe and secure and look forward to welcoming you to Children First – Alpha Street Preschool.

Donna Lawrence, Centre Manager
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Centre Manager of both Children First Alpha Street Preschool and Balmoral Street Preschool and Occasional Care.
I’m enthusiastic about being part of children’s early learning experiences and supporting families and their own values; which I believe deserves, to be nurtured with respect. I have faith that working in partnership with families creates a cohesive learning environment.
I consider that early years form such a critical period in a child’s life; laying the foundations for future learning. As we know each child is unique and as such develops at their own time, therefore learning occurs with time and patience.
I encourage and welcome an open-door policy and invite you to come chat, share feedback or suggestions with me or your child’s educator at any time.
I look forward to welcoming you to Children First and seeing your child reach their full potential with us.
