St Nicholas Early Education
At St Nicholas Early Education our highly-skilled educators aim to help unleash the unlimited creative potential within each child. A child’s curiosity and desire to explore their own interests drives them to participate in creating their own learning paths - and St Nick’s educators help nurture and guide them on this exciting journey.
This understanding of the innateness of curiosity and its role in early learning is at the heart of St Nicholas’ approach to early education.

Transition to School Program
At St Nick’s Newcastle West, we understand that the transition from early education to primary school is an incredible step in your child’s journey, making our Transition to School Program a standout feature of the preschool curriculum.
This program provides children with the opportunity to become familiar with primary school life by introducing routines which will continue into their journey to primary school. To help ease the transition, children are given the opportunity to embark on excursions to their local primary school where they attend assemblies and interact with school-aged children.
