Virtual Tour

Come on a virtual tour of Pymble Turramurra Preschool as we show you through our creative environment where teaching, play and communication form the basis for learning.


From Aunty Wendy’s Mob – performer

“Thank you once again for inviting me to perform at your amazing preschool! I visit hundreds of preschools every year…and thousands over the last 16 years that I’ve been presenting. I’m an early childhood trained teacher so I know when I’m in an inspiring place for children and amongst warm and professional educators. The children have been consistently fantastic every year I come and that says to me that the educators who care for them have a lot to be proud of…. it’s such hard work to make a preschool ‘work’ and Pymble Turramurra Preschool WORKS! Congratulations to your amazing team who have such a profound impact on the children attending the preschool.”

“The children were so responsive, which is usually a result of fabuloso teachers. It’s easy to rock the house when they are inspired little people!”

“I have had two children attend Handley Ave Preschool so far and I couldn’t recommend it more highly. Whilst the facilities and huge outdoor play area and garden are very impressive, it’s the wonderful Staff who are the heart and soul of the preschool. Their genuine care for each child, dedication to providing stimulation learning activities and positive attitude towards eachother and the wider parent community is truly inspiring. I feel very lucky my children have experienced such a positive introduction to school.” [SJ]

“The team at Handley are true professionals. I am thoroughly impressed with the nurturing and learning environment that Handley provides and am constantly amazed at how my daughter continues to thrive and develop in her cognitive and inter-personal skills. I can’t speak more highly of the Handley team.” [DL]

“Love the friendly staff, beautiful grounds and the fact that my child asks daily when he can come back.”

“I have found the teachers and staff to be sincerely caring toward my child. I can see she is already feeling a warm sense of belonging at preschool which I feel is very important for her resilience building. I feel extremely confident that she is surrounded by a wonderful team of very positive role models during the three days she is there.”

“Very friendly and well organised.”

“My child is always happy to go to preschool and looks forward to seeing his teacher and friends.”

“Class mums, social committees and board of management are all good opportunities for parents to be involved.”

“Handley has provided my children with a sense of security at those all-so-important moments of separation from their family for their ‘big day of play’. They have also given them a sense of belonging and personal dignity, enabling my children to feel truly involved in the pre-school’s activities. The teaching staff stewarded them through the vital stage of knowing boundaries and showing kindness, all this, whilst having fun at pre-school everyday they were there. Thanks Handley.” [VM]

“As soon as we walked into Handley my husband and i knew Olivia would have happy days there. Being new to the area and not having family nearby, Handley became our extended family instead! Couldnt have asked for more.” [LS]
