Our focus in this room is on preparing your child for school and developing and fostering their individual interests.
Feedback from parents tells us that they value the creativity and inventiveness of our teachers in increasing their children’s confidence and social and emotional skills. The classroom and large sunny outdoor area are well resourced with an extensive range of equipment and a variety of mediums to encourage children to research, discover and explore. Our experienced teachers are committed to enabling children to feel safe to challenge themselves and take ownership of their own learning. The team in the Preschool Room works in partnership with families to set goals where children are challenged to build on existing relationships and previous learning experiences. Children in the Preschool Room are able to gain increasing independence in preparation for school. Teachers also support children to become familiar with early literacy and numeracy concepts.

My son’s new entrant teacher specifically mentioned how well prepared he was for school, and put him straight into the top reading group in his class.”
