Appletree Preschool is a privately owned Centre located in Castle Hill behind the Oakhill Village shops. The Centre backs onto quiet bushland and a creek; connecting the children with nature and their local area, fostering environmental awareness.


The Centre is licensed for 39 children per day from ages 2-6 years old. The preschool is open from 7:30am to 5:30pm Monday to Friday. We are closed on all NSW public holidays and close for 3 weeks over the Christmas and new year period.


We currently offer both short day and long day options to families.

- Short days are 8:00am to 4:00pm

- Long days are 7:30am to 5:30pm


Our Centre has two dedicated rooms; Our Koalas room and our Joeys & Kangaroos room.


The Koalas room is our smaller room for children aged 2 to 3 years; and our larger room is shared by the Joeys and Kangaroos for children aged between 3 to 6 years. 

Within the Koalas room (2-3 y/o), there are 8 children daily with 2 educators. Within the Joeys & Kangaroos room (3-6 y/o), there are 30 children daily with 4 educators.


The preschool offers a comprehensive early childhood education with experienced, qualified educators supporting and nurturing each child’s learning journey.

Appletree Preschool offers a holistic approach to learning, valuing family and community involvement.

Families are welcomed and encouraged to be a part of the learning experiences and share in their child’s creativity, imagination and education.
