Welcome to Leaps & Bounds Manly.

We provide a specialised and engaging preschool program with extended hours for 40 children per day. Throughout the day the children will play, sing, dance, create, paint, explore, investigate, story tell and get messy!

Our program focuses on the belief that children learn best through play, following the Early Years Learning Framework. Our preschool is dedicated to nurturing your child and their unique passions while helping them grow, develop and learn.

Our emphasis is on learning through play while building secure, lasting relationships and resilience. We aim to provide a home away from home for your child and hope that Leaps & Bounds will become an extension of your family.

NSW | 2-6 years


Our Manly preschool is a converted church that has been beautifully renovated to provide the perfect learning environment for your child. We enrol children aged 2 – 6 years and are open 7.30am – 6.00pm. We are conveniently located in a quiet residential street in Manly, close to the Andrew Boy Charlton Pool.

Our program

As education and consistency is our focus, we aim to have the same teachers and educators on every day your child attends. We invest in each child as an individual and seek to understand who they are, what they love and what they want to explore.

Not only will this ensure your child feels supported, understood and encouraged throughout their learning journey but this will give your child the opportunity to form lasting bonds and relationships throughout their time at Leaps & Bounds Preschool.

Through play, our program focuses on the development of the whole child – physical, cognitive, language, social, emotional and spiritual.

We understand that families have different needs and may require flexibility – Please call Gillian or Ruby, the Centre Director on (02) 9977 8937 to discuss your options.
