The Prepare Early Education Program (EEP) is designed to cater for individual learning styles and encourages children to be confident, active participants in their learning.
Prepare Early Education Program
Our inquiry-based programs, together with our play-based learning environments actively promote children’s learning through relevant and challenging experiences that foster high-level thinking.
The educational program that we provide is continuously reflected upon to ensure that children’s learning and development is always extended. Our planning cycle can be seen above. You have the opportunity to enrol your child in extra- curricular activities that benefit children’s learning and development. These consist of various sporting sessions, dance and drama lessons, language programs and other health and wellbeing programs. Incursions such as the egg to chicken hatching program, health and safety sessions and children’s storybook authors during book week are all organised to coincide with important educational events. Children’s excursions are great ways to connect your child with their community. These are organised throughout the year to complement our curriculum and further children’s understanding and knowledge of the world around them.
To ensure you know how your child is progressing, parent information sessions are organised throughout the year, along with ‘school readiness’ evenings where the local Principal is invited to attend. Parent/teacher meetings are great opportunities to communicate with the educators about your child’s progress, interests, development and goals. These are scheduled appointments that are organised throughout the year. Parent seminars on topics such as health and nutrition, behaviour guidance and child development are planned throughout the year to benefit all parents. Keep up to date with what’s happening on the Calendar of Events on our App!
