St Joseph’s Preschool caters to families in the north Canberra area.

St Joseph’s Early Learning Centre is located in O’Connor and provides Preschool education for families within the Catholic Parish of St Joseph’s, St Michael’s (Kaleen), St Vincent’s (Aranda), St Thomas More’s (Campbell) and Rosary (Watson). St Joseph’s Early Learning Centre is a corridor Preschool and also takes enrolments from families that are located out of area. We are located close to the city centre and many parents find our location beneficial due to our prime location. St Joseph’s ELC offers a quality preschool education for three and four year old children. St Joseph’s Preschool invites your child to take their first step into Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn.

At St Joseph’s Preschool we offer:

  • A curriculum based on the Australian National Early Years Learning Framework.
  • A play-based preschool program that includes both intentional teaching and learning opportunities based on the interests of the children.
  • A rich community that focuses on a sense of belonging, pastoral care and support for all children and their families.
  • A facilitated and seamless transition into our Catholic Primary Schools.
  • A program that promotes Catholic values and encourages exploration, independence and responsibility.
