Truly Best primary school for a child
I know the previous question was posted long ago, but if someone is looking for the best primary and pre-school in sydney and they are concerned about the childs holistic education (not the parents prestige etc), then one should absolutely look at Currambena Primary and Preschool
It is a democratic child centered school with a fantastic community and teachers. It gives a broader education, including conflict resolution. See the web for more details. Both my kids go there and I am super impressed and wish that I could have gone to a school like that!
It is in Lane Cove on the lower north shore. Some children have over the years travelled long distances to attend the school in preference to others (Palm beach, davidson, bondi etc).
Recently an overseas family chose the school prior to coming out to do a sabbatical here as their main concern was that there child should be happy.
