Early Years Mini School

 

Welcome to Early Years (Prep to Year 4).

Our Mini School is led by an Assistant Principal. The Assistant Principal is supported by several Leading Teachers, a team of committed Early Years teachers, Education Support staff and external agencies.

The Early Years Mini School covers the first 5 years of school (Prep – Year 4). The team in the Early Years Mini School is very committed to providing each child with a smooth transition to school and the core foundations for students’ cognitive, social and emotional development.

Teaching and Education Support staff work in partnership with families to ensure the transition reflects individual needs and provides a solid foundation for childrens’ future education. The Early Years Mini School is a safe, nurturing and engaging learning space.

The academic program includes a strong focus on literacy, numeracy and enquiry; play-based programs to facilitate the development of students’ social skills; a Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) to help students develop their physical motor skills; languages – Japanese and Italian; and performing and visual arts.

The College provides before and after school care, a breakfast program two mornings a week and a variety of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities to encourage high levels of student engagement and a love of learning in a wide range of contexts.

Students are supported by a wide range of services including psychologists, speech pathologists and counsellors to ensure they have assistance with any learning or personal difficulties.

Our facilities are bright, colourful and provide a stimulating and inviting learning space.
