About Us

Our Story

Preschool Equipment was established in 1992 by Anna and Cyril Lutchner. Dissatisfied with equipment available to their grandchildren at the time, they sought to supply high quality Australian made furniture and equipment to early childhood experts, educators and centres.

Pioneers in the industry

Over time, the business has grown to incorporate three generations of family to deliver natural learning environments through durable, streamlined designs. Pioneering the use of hardwoods, PSE’s versatile range amounts to almost 400 products, majority of which are still handmade in Australia.
