The Process

If you are seeking childcare within the Lake Macquarie, Cameron Park and Newcastle area for your child we would love you to consider Fairyland Preschool Barnsley.

  • Fill in the waiting list application form and return via email or post.
  • As your child approaches 2 years of age and a vacancy becomes available, you will be invited to visit the preschool. This allows you and your child to participate in activities, meet with staff and observe our environment
  • When you have been offered a placement, you will receive an enrolment pack to complete. This must be completed in full and returned with bond and fee payments before your child can commence. Most placements are offered in August/September of each year to start the following January. Our orientation week is held in the first week of December each year. During orientation, parents and children are invited to attend the morning session (9.00am – 11.00am). Attendance at these sessions allows you to become familiar with our routine, meet our educators, join in on activities, share morning tea and familiarise your child with our environment in preparation for the following year.

We provide a school readiness program that starts from the moment you walk into our beautiful preschool. Our early learning school readiness program emphasises not only language, maths, science, sustainability and environmental awareness, health and art among others. The friendship and respect our staff display for one another transfer to our children and families. With a stable team of dedicated childcare professionals, long-term, trust-based relationships are a feature of our small Fairyland community. Children are taught independence, resilience as well as the importance of friendship and community.

Our centre is located in a quiet area of Lake Macquarie with a private, secure yard and beautiful inside rooms. Specifically designed for learning; children can enjoy nature and develop important gross motor skills at the same time. Consisting of many natural play spaces, it provides a fantastic environment for children to explore. Children play a large role in the education and care of their environment. That’s why we have created our daily routine to incorporate care and respect of the animals living at our Preschool. This includes; chickens, fish and birds as well as tending our extensive garden and vegetables.

We’re accepting enrolments. Contact us today to book a visit to the centre.
