Emmerick Street Community Preschool

“NQS Quality Rating:  Exceeding National Quality Standards”

Emmerick Street Community Preschool is a non-profit community-based preschool located in the heart of Lilyfield, in Sydney’s Inner West.

It is run by the teaching director and the parents of attending children.  We believe this parent inclusive approach creates a strong sense of community and an environment that is nurturing and supportive of your child’s preparation for their school years.

The preschool offers spacious indoor and outdoor areas in a homely cottage setting with light airy rooms and high ceilings.  This ‘home’ like setting with strong parental involvement and collaboration supports the children’s feeling of belonging and ‘fitting in’.

The playground is all natural with numerous trees and plants, wood chips for soft-fall, a timber climbing, a kitchen garden complete with composting and worm farm, a large sandpit and water fountain and some Balmain history, all this surrounded by mature shady trees.

If you have an enquiry about a place for your child or would like to visit the preschool, please email director@emmerickstreet.com.au Alternatively to wait list your child please fill in the form

"Ben can't wait to get to preschool and his favourite thing to do is play in 'block corner'. The blocks are big, old fashioned wooden blocks. I personally love the beautiful garden and the homely cottage feel of the building".
“The thing I love most about Emmerick Street is its setting – a small, intimate cottage. It’s a child’s treasure cove – full of beautiful toys, books, puzzles and games.”
