Dubbo District Preschool - Life Long Learning



Dubbo and District Preschool has been proudly serving the children and families of Dubbo for over 50 years. Whilst we are proud of this history, we continue to strive towards providing high quality education that reflects current research and understandings about children. We value the wonder and excitement of children and recognise these early years as an opportunity for children to play, learn, create and imagine and our programs reflect this focus.
