Prep - 4 to 5 years
Welcome to our Prep Room!
We believe that our educational program will be second to none and we even have our own INTERACTIVE SMART BOARD in this room to take our learning to an even higher level.
These are almost unheard of in childcare but we have spared no expense! Our school readiness program will continue and will compliment the phonics programs used in local primary schools.
Our Early Childhood Teachers are trained up to early primary years thus ensuring that our programs are designed around preparation for school entry.
Our pre-school and prep room have a playground away from the younger children where their gross motor skills are further developed and extended.
