School Readiness Starts Here

Our exceptional kindergarten and preschool program provides every opportunity to prepare your child for a positive start to their schooling years. Here, our educators strike a balance between child-initiated and teacher-led activities.

While still focusing on attentive care and play-based learning, our educators will foster your child’s natural desire to engage with educational programs for life. We deliver a School Readiness program that specialises in allowing your child to slowly adapt to the new school environment socially, emotionally and mentally before they even arrive. This program teaches the children a variety of literacy and numeracy skills, including how to write their names, identification of simple numbers and shapes, recognition skills, such as identifying their school bags, and a range of communications skills, tools and tactics.

To ensure we are giving the children the best chance of settling into school quickly, we work with Our Lady and Mullun Mullun Schools to ensure the children’s development is on track.

When the time comes, your child will be ready to spread their wings and fly.
