Houghton Preschool

Welcome to Houghton Preschool

Houghton Preschool is located in the Adelaide Hills approximately 8 minutes from Tea Tree Gully. The Preschool is surrounded by beautiful trees and bush reserve, the environment opens the doors to learning through nature.

Houghton Preschool is a unique preschool having capacity for only 15 children in total. The teacher and school services officer (SSO) provide an engaging learning environment connecting to nature. Having a small group of children allows the educators to form strong partnerships with families and work together as a community of learners.

Houghton Preschool works in partnership with Paracombe Primary School with a continual transition to school program throughout the year. The Transition Program consists of regular visits to Paracombe Primary School and joint excursions together. The Principal, Bill Lewis, is involved with the Preschool coming to site on a weekly basis and engaging with the children’s learning.
