    School Readiness Experience

    Our "Preppies" are provided with a range of engaging and age-appropriate activities that are specifically designed to prepare them for their transition to Kindergarten.

    With a focus on fostering curiosity, creativity, and a desire to explore and respond to new experiences, our program provides a solid foundation in the key skills that your child will develop throughout their education.

  • Story time for prep

    Positive Behaviour

    At our school, we prioritise the development of positive behaviour in our students, which is why we have implemented a comprehensive Positive Behaviour Program that is available to all students in the Junior School grades.

    This program is designed to empower students to make good choices about their behaviour, while also encouraging them to maintain a strong focus on their learning.

    Flexibility

    You have the flexibility to choose from either two or three days per week, depending on your schedule and availability.

    We understand that your schedule may change throughout the year, which is why we offer the convenience of being able to adjust the times you attend our program. We will do our best to accommodate your preferences.

Integrated Program

We provide your child with a mixture of in-class and outdoor learning and play. Literacy and numeracy lessons, based around the NESA Early Stage One curriculum, are complemented by music, sport, science, and visits to the library. We integrate our Bible-based Christian Education program into student learning right from the beginning.
