Quality Preschool Curriculum within a Christian Framework

We will be using an excellent educational program within a Christian framework, following the Early Years Learning Framework. The focus will be on preparing children for school by using evidence - informed methods and engaging families in the educational process. 
Our Founding Director Ali Mak (formerly Greene) has over 30 years experience in early childhood education, including setting up two new services. 

“I believe that in early childhood relationships are key to everything. Children need to feel secure in their environment to be comfortable to learn.”
Ali Mak BAEd, Director

St Nics' Christian Preschool was created...

Following the long-running success of St. Nics’ Playroom, one of the best playgroups in this part of Sydney, St. Nicolas’ Anglican Church, Coogee, opened in September 2017.  

Our vision is to set up a high-quality, effective, outcomes-driven Christian preschool for up to 59 children aged 2 to 6 years.

With play as the medium for learning, our teachers and educators will create an environment both indoor and out where children will want to learn. To find out more about our education and beliefs please read St Nics' Christian Preschool Philosophy.

We have a strong partnership with St. Nicolas’ Anglican Church, Coogee and encourage our families to join our Church community. The Preschool children will have excursions to visit St. Nicolas’ Church as well as being active participants at the end of each term Church Services on Sunday.

Find out more about St. Nicolas’ Anglican Church, Coogee. Sunday Services are at 9:30am  followed by a morning tea in the garden. 


We are a not-for-profit incorporation managed by Rector of St Nicholas Anglican Church and elected committee members. Our Nominated Supervisor and Director is Ali Mak BAEd. manages the day-to-day operations of the Preschool.
