Prep Parents

First term, we help your child settle into the school. We nurture them and ensure they are happy at school.

The Prep curriculum emphasises Literacy and Numeracy skills. It includes a two-hour daily Literacy block and a one-hour daily Numeracy block.

There will be opportunity for your child to explore his/her world. We ensure that our students ask lots of questions and we foster their curiosity.

We teach our students to become good learners and to have a passion for learning.

Your child will sometimes work with the whole class, and at other times in small groups. As your child develops, they will learn to work independently.
