About our school

Australia Street Infants School is a unique inner city infants school established in 1889. The school provides critical family services within a focused integrated continuum of early learning through Lennox House community centre (0-5 years), Preschool program (3-5 years) and K-2 Infants School (4-8 years). We aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating learning environment which fosters co-operation and teamwork throughout our learning community. 

The school is unique in that it is the only school that provides educational and social programs for students exclusively over the 0–8 years range.  Over the course of its history it has received much positive attention for innovative practice within early childhood education.

Our central purpose is to provide your child with the necessary knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes to ensure a sound foundation for life-long learning, through the provision of a relevant, meaningful and practical curriculum which takes into consideration prior knowledge, developing interests and needs of your child.

What drives us?

We are committed in providing your child with an exciting, challenging and innovative start to school limited only by your child's interests and our imagination.
