Pre-Prep Program

Ready, Set, Thrive! 

Pre-Prep is a 4/5 Year old program offering 4 days a week and led by three supportive, creative and enthusiastic educators. Pre-Prep caters for the older child who would benefit from another year of kinder or a longer program. Children will learn and extend their social skills, build resilience and greater confidence through play, emerging ready to thrive as they embark on their school journey. Our program is child initiated and engaging with planned intentional teaching experiences supporting preparation for school readiness. 

The curriculum focuses on extending literacy and numeracy and equipping children with the tools to be confident learners at school.  In Pre-Prep children’s interests and skills are developed through individual and small group project work and are embedded in rich children’s literature.  Educators hold a belief that all children leave with a view of themselves as capable and curious individuals equipped with skills to research and investigate their wonderings and form a deep love of learning and connection with others.  Throughout the year there is a rich emphasis on extracurricular experiences including: Little Learners Love Literacy program, Science, Music, Drama, Yoga, Library, Mandarin and PMP. 

Our newly renovated outdoor environment also supports children who learn best outside. We are fortunate at St Paul’s to have access to three recreational spaces for delivery of our PMP program and areas for active children to play.  The children will benefit from regular visits to the local primary school and an extended bush kinder program at Wattle Park to help facilitate connections with the wider community. 

Please see link to Pre-Prep Selection Criteria. The indicative program fees apply to children who are eligible to receive DET Funding. Children who are not eligible to receive DET funding will be required to pay the full funding amount in addition to the program fees above.
