About Us


WPSA is a non-profit organisation.

We were formed in 1965 as the Nunawading PreSchool Association by a number of Nunawading preschools who wanted to set up a support network for themselves.  When the government amalgamated Nunawading and Box Hill the name of the association changed to Whitehorse PreSchool Association (WPSA).


Our Executive Committee, made up of volunteer members from our member preschools, manages the WPSA.  Our Executive Committee is filled by each member preschool on a roster basis with each preschool providing a representative about every 3-4 years.  Positions on the Executive Committee include President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and General Members.

The WPSA employs an Assocation Manager and Assistant Association Manager as a job-share position and has a contracted bookkeeper.


The Whitehorse City Council does not employ or manage the WPSA; however Council does provide financial support in the form of a community partnership grant.


The main aims of the WPSA are - 

  • To coordinate enrolment applications for all member preschools.
  • To support committees of management.
  • To help develop enrolment selection criteria and policy.
  • To support and assist preschool committees of management in changes and updates in the early childhood sector.
  • To act as a coordinating body for preschool committees and other organisations in the Whitehorse area.
  • To liase with responsible government authorities.
