Pre Prep Room

3 years to 5 years

Our Pre-Prep Room caters to children aged 3-5years. We have 2 staff in the room (a Teacher and an Educator Assistant) with a maximum of 24 children. The Pre-Prep room has a qualified Early Childhood Teacher who facilitates the Early Years Leaning Framework or the Queensland Kindergarten Program. The emphasis of the pre-prep room is on encouraging children to play a larger part in the planning process while developing skills that will be used at school.

In the Pre-Prep room staff closely monitor the children’s ever changing interests and then base learning around these experiences to ensure that the learning has intrinsic meaning and value to the children.
