After almost two decades of hard work by local families, the new Pretty Beach Community Preschool (formerly known as Walsingham Community Preschool) is now up and running.
 
This architecturally designed not for profit facility has already been awarded runner-up at the Keep Australia Beautiful ‘Do the Right Thing’ Waste Minimisation Award for its ecofriendly design including the use of recycled building materials.

Local architect Milosh Obradovic (Site Studio) spent numerous hours working with the Preschool Committee to come up with this amazing facility for local children.
 
The building is situated behind Pretty Beach Public School on the site of the former school masters residence and includes materials from the original cottage.
 
The design concept was inspired by the well known children's book Where The Wild Things Are and includes floor to ceiling poles that have been wrapped with tree trunks to replicate forest trees.
 
The playground was designed by local landscape architect David Duncan (Aspect Studio) who, with help from Luke Bradstreet (Landscape Construction), developed a creative external environment that includes a vegetable garden that the children help plant and maintain.

 

The Preschool is expanding at a rapid rate, with families from around the district all vying for a place for their preschool children.
