Littlehampton Primary and Preschool

Littlehampton Primary and Preschool is a vibrant, inclusive school community located in the Adelaide Hills in the greater Mt Barker area, and open to families living in the Littlehampton School zone.

Our school-based preschool caters for children aged 4-5 years, while the primary school provides education for 5-13 years olds (Reception through to Year 6). The school combines a traditional classroom environment with a range of indoor and outdoor spaces that encourage natural curiosity and learning through exploration and inquiry.
