It is our Mission to nurture children towards curious, inquiring, respectful, tolerant and unique individuals who are able to function in society in a creative and confident manner and who are able to solve problems and make decisions.

— Delia Cupido

Chameleon Preschool and Educare Centre has been committed to building and sustaining an integrated, dynamic, developmental approach to education for the past 10+ years. United by our anti-bias teaching, we are continually creating a child-centered, nurturing and stimulating environment, striving to expand our authentically multi-cultural community.

In November 2006, Chameleon Preschool and Educare Centre adapted to a change in ownership under Delia Cupido. The Centre was previously owned and run by Sue Baillie since May 1995, before which it was known as Katy’s since its establishment in 1984. The name “Chameleon” was chosen by children, staff and parents in May 1997 because chameleons represent change, adaptability, colour and nature, all of which are relevant to our approach.

We celebrate diversity and multiculturalism and strive to avoid bias in our programme and to instill an attitude of respect and tolerance. We also place an emphasis on respect for and knowledge of our environment.

As a community of concerned educators and parents, we are legally structured as a private educational institution with a Parent Body, and we are registered with the Department of Health, Welfare and the department of WDED. We provide a high quality educational experience for children between the ages of approximately 3 months to 7 years.

We also offer Aftercare and Holiday Care for primary school children. We encourage and support parents in their parenting skills, children’s development and involvement in the school.

Your involvement as a parent is essential to bridging the gap between home and school and we therefore encourage open and constructive communication between the staff and yourselves.
