Our History

Vera Lacaze Memorial Kindergarten and Preschool opened on the 2nd of February 1965 and is named after the first woman elected to the Toowoomba City Council – a very community minded lady committed to the needs of children. That caring and community spirit continues to this day.


Vera Lacaze Memorial Kindergarten & Preschool celebrated 50 years of service to the local Toowoomba community in 2015.

We were officially opened by the then Mayor, Alderman J McCafferty on 20 March 1965.

Vera Lacaze Memorial Kindergarten & Preschool plays a very important role in the early education and social development of young children in the Toowoomba region. This vital service has continued for 50 years because of the countless hours volunteered by parents and other members of the local community, along with the dedication and professionalism of staff.
