Our History

Binnowee, which is an Aboriginal word meaning “a green place,” has been operating as a Kindergarten since 1935. Miss Winifred Macourt began the Kindergarten in the home of Mr. S Oxley, near Thompson’s corner at West Pennant Hills.

Eventually the land at 6 New Line Road where Binnowee is now situated was purchased in 1956 and the Kindergarten officially opened in 1957. In 1972 extensions to the Kindergarten were completed bringing the preschool to its present size.

Overview

Binnowee Kindergarten caters for 40 children each day in 2 classes and provides a high quality early learning program. Our preschool is open from 8.30am to 4pm each day during school terms and caters for children from 3 to 5 years of age. The staff and educators at Binnowee are a highly experienced team who are committed to ensuring that we do the very best for the children in our care so that they find their time at Binnowee is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

A Day at Binnowee

Our day usually begins with outside play, although this can change to suit weather conditions. A variety of experiences are programmed for each day, such as gross motor & movement challenges, construction activities, dramatic play, sand play, books, drawing and puzzles. We encourage physical
activity as it is so important for children’s health and development. After morning tea we commence inside activities.

In planning our programs we try and cater for the interests and needs of all the children. The programs are flexible and may change depending on how the day is going. We welcome your feedback.

During inside-time the children participate in a wide range of activities such as home corner, block play, books, puzzles, toys, dough, art and craft experiences. We encourage the children to choose their own activities and we respect and support them in their choices.
