Prep

​Our Prep students engage in a rich and innovative curriculum using ipads,  interactive whiteboards and specialised manipulative resources.  Students are encouraged to collaborate and negotiate, be creative, solve problems and construct knowledge together whilst instilling an absolute love of learning.  We offer a complete curriculum that challenges students to excel.

We use the new Australian Curriculum and the Queensland Early Years curriculum to achieve the best educational outcomes.  We work and liaise with world recognised academics to deliver outstanding learning outcomes.  Our teachers use the research and work with Barbara Brann an Early Years Literacy consultant and Ann Baker, a Math consultant, both of international acclaim.

Our Literacy program is underpinned by the Magic Caterpillar’s Building Blocks to Literacy framework of interconnected skills designed to ensure that children develop the foundational skills for literacy including phonological and phonemic awareness, motor skills, print concepts and oracy.

Our mathematics program is guided by our Natural Maths philosophy. Students learn to apply mathematical concepts through natural real life events.  This allows students to see real world application of mathematics.  Students develop fluency and understanding of mathematical concepts in order to apply these skills to problem solving and reasoning tasks.  Students develop their ability to problem solve and reason through problemitised situations, challenging unfamiliar problems that involve a number of steps and strategies.  Students explain their thinking, when they deduce and justify strategies used and conclusions reached.  

In prep we study the following curriculum areas: English, Maths, Science, History, Geography; along with a number of key skills included in the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines.  Our students participate in specialist lessons including; Drama in our Creative Arts building and Physical Education with our experienced Physical Education Teacher.  Teachers utilize our state of the art facilities to deliver outstanding lessons.  Students can learn and perform science experiments in our Science Laboratory, borrow books and hear enchanting stories in our new library/resource centre.

We are confident your child will love Prep because it is so much fun! We play, explore, investigate, discuss, create, build, sing, dance and discover. Your child will be in an engaging and supportive environment that develops and fosters a love of school and learning.  Enquire today for a preparatory enrolment package.
