Prep

Prep Overview

 

Our modern day Prep Classrooms, combined with dedicated and talented teachers and teacher aides, provide a great start for your child`s school life. Their day includes a full developmental program which is derived from the P - 3 curriculum and the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines. Benchmarks in Literacy and Numeracy have been set for our Prep children to aspire to by the end of their prep year (for example PM level 4 for reading). Children attend for the whole day which commences at 8:50am and finishes at 2:45pm.

All Prep classrooms have an Interactive White Board; in fact all classrooms in all year levels have Interactive White Boards as well as four computers. This is complimented with computer labs, a well equipped library and other electronic resource materials.

Our academic endeavours are supported by a caring learning environment, where children feel safe and respected.

Those three words in bold outline our entire philosophy for our 'School Wide Positive Behaviour Model'. We believe behaviour needs to be taught and nurtured with the rights of all firmly drawn in the sand. Everyone has the right to be safe, to learn and to be respected.

Specialist teachers in physical education, music and library provide grounding in these skills on a regular basis.

Our welcoming environment enables parents and support groups to interact in the school community. The most famous of these is our 'grandparenting' program. Parents have regular access to classrooms and teachers and as a result, have a healthy partnership in their child's education.

Feel free to use our online ready reckoner to see when your child can start Prep.
