Our Gumnut program is a music and movement group that develops your child’s social skills, language and brain development. There is also a strong focus on numeracy and literacy so that your child is school ready. This extended hours program is a wonderful asset for our families at Pinemont Preschool.

The program runs on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons between the hours of 1.30pm and 4pm. To be part of the Gumnuts Program your child does not need to attend kinder that day!

The program allows for approximately 15 students and preference is given to working families.
