Prep is a fun and exciting place for our beginning Little Learners to start to explore their world through learning, through play and really start to understand the relationship of playing with others.
Our day starts at 8:30am and concludes at 3:00pm.
Your child will learn and explore in fun and exciting ways through investigation, play and real-life situations. During play, they make decisions, solve problems, develop thinking skills, collaborate, communicate and develop a positive sense of self.
In Prep time our children will be using blocks, creating collages and doing other activities that develop early mathematical concepts and skills. Drawing and painting helps to encourage oral language and storytelling as well as reading and writing skills. The children will “write” stories through pictures and copy signs as part of their play.
One of the most important skills learnt are not only to play and investigate independently, but also as a team or a group, either while participating in various indoor or outdoor activities.

We do various dramatic plays giving children another creative outlet to express themselves and gain confidence in doing so in a fun environment. During all this “play”, there is also a lot of learning going on and the children learn through various art and craft activities, musical activities, building and just general playing – inside and out – an enormous amount of information that helps them to learn about the world around them in a safe, caring and loving environment.
