Larapinta Primary School Logo


Larapinta Preschool has been rated as Exceeding the National Quality Standard, which sets the benchmark in early childhood education and care, and outside school hours care services.

Larapinta Preschool follows the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning, as play provides some of the most appropriate stimulus for brain development. The EYLF is essential to support and enhance young children’s learning and prepares them well for their transition to full-time schooling.

Our Preschool program offers a variety of class groups.
