hay preschool for school readiness and play

Hillston Billylids Early Learning Centre (Long Day Care) aims to support our community by providing a nurturing education and care environment for children aged 0-6 years. Our Educators pride themselves on building strong relationships with children and families, ensuring that they can explore and develop in a safe and age-appropriate space. We honour play-based programs to facilitate children reaching their milestones and develop their own identities.

Throughout the day children will spend time with their key Educators in smaller groups of peers of a similar age. This allows the Educators to design activities and spaces that honour each child’s individual stage of development.
