LONG JETTY PRESCHOOL
We are a Community Based Preschool, established in 1987.
We are a Community Based Pre-School, which was established in April 1987. For many years we operated from the First Tuggerah Lakes Scout Hall.
In 1997, after a long campaign, we secured State Government Capital Funding enabling us to build our wonderful current purpose built Pre-School. This was a huge achievement for all those involved. One the community can be proud of. 1998 was spent planning and building the new building, whilst also continuing to operate out of the hall. On 22nd February 1999 we opened for operation in our lovely new building. With our new premises we were able to expand to a two unit service.
We are a non-profit organisation.
We lease the land the Pre-School is built on from Wyong Shire Council.
Local Clubs Diggers @ the Entrance and Mingara Recreation Club have supported our service annual through the Community Development support Expenditure (CDSE) enabling our service to achieve additional projects and goals.

We are licensed to operate by the Department of Education & Communities (DEC). We are assessed and licensed under the National Quality Framework (NQF) implemented by DEC. During this assessment every policy, procedure and aspect of our service is reviewed and assessed according to the NQF and the ‘Education and Care Services National Regulations’. DEC staff also conduct unannounced monitoring visits at all services.
DEC provide us with State Government Funding (Operational Funds), which includes an element of Fee Relief (Affordability Funds) for families on low incomes (for eligible families who possess a Low Income Health Care Card in the Family name and/or receive a pension- from Centrelink).
