Early Childhood Education
Situated on the college campus, the centre is separated from the primary and secondary school areas, in order to focus on these formative years in a safe, social and unique learning environment.
Kindergarten is offered to students three days a week (Monday, Wednesday Friday) in a relaxed style that concentrates on learning through a blend of play-based and explicit teaching activities. As this first year of schooling is transitionary – from the home in to the school – emphasis is placed on time spent socialising with fellow classmates, and experiencing outdoor play in the dedicated, newly-built early childhood playground area.
Pre-primary is offered to students five days a week in the same Early Childhood Education area. The curriculum follows guidelines and bench-marks set by the State Government of Western Australia, and is led by a specialised early childhood education teacher. Pre-primary students are also involved in specialist programs for religion, sports, music and language.
