Our unique curriculum draws upon national best practice, plus the latest university and industry research to ensure that we provide every child with an exceptional program.
Our Preschool programs are run by our experienced university qualified teachers and ensure that we offer your child a range of stimulating and thought provoking opportunities to grow and develop in all areas, ensuring that preparation for school is at the forefront of our curriculums. This will ensure that the children will be able to challenge and extend their own thinking, understand various concepts, create new knowledge and are given opportunities to enhance their skills and learn to value a love of lifelong learning. We provide regular parent – teacher meetings to ensure that the journey before school is collaboratively planned with the family to achieve the best outcomes for children. We recognise the importance of reciprocal relationships and value partnerships in learning. It is essential for both the child and family to be comfortable with the transition process, as we support you on this journey.
At Prepare, we take a holistic approach to teaching and learning and focus on children’s physical, personal, social, emotional and cognitive development and wellbeing.
Approximately six months before school starts, your child will receive a School Transition Statement that outlines the progress achieved so far based on the key learning areas at school. This is a valuable report that aids schools in learning more about your child.
Every term our educators create term plans that outline the intentional teaching outcomes for the class. You will receive this plan prior to the commencement of each term to ensure that you are informed and aware of our planned goals for the coming weeks.
Our transition to school program includes school orientation visits and various incursions, lunch box weeks and school uniform week, to ensure that your child develops the necessary independence and self-help skills to assist with their school transition.
We offer the Macquarie University Pre-Lit Program, that focuses on phonological awareness and pre-reading skills. Our educators are trained in the delivery of the Pre-Lit Program to ensure that our children receive an exceptional program to enhance their skills in this important area.
At Prepare early Education Centre, your child will leave with valuable and enriched life skills that will create the foundations for their future school journey.
