Possums Playschool was founded in 2000 by Donna Catherall. In its first four years, the Playschool was successfully operated by Playschool parents as a sub-committee of the Miles Franklin Preschool Parents Association.
In 2004 the Canberra Preschool Society Inc. directed a restructuring of the management of Playschools. As a result, the Possums Playschool Parent Association Inc. was established in November 2004.
In 2016 Possums Playschool relocated from Higgins to its current premises at 30 Scattergood Place, Spence.
Possums Playschool provides a play-based learning facility with structured activities for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. The Playschool is a viable community based, non-government funded service for our children.
