Our preschool early learning allows 3 – 4 year olds imagination to grow

At 3 years old, our children are introduced to areas of cognitive development and stimulating thought processes. Numeracy and literacy teaching are included in the program daily. The children experience learning these ideas through play and exploration. The play environment is set up to encourage social interactions and develop a variety of skills.

School Readiness Program

The School Readiness Program introduces children to concepts of pre-writing, pre-maths, pre-science and pre-reading through a fully comprehensive program. The children have a choice between varieties of activities. This includes painting and manipulative activities such as play-dough and threading. These Prep activities develop fine motor skills, pre-writing skills, creativity and encourage role play.

In our Preparation for Primary School Development class, children are given time to practise refining skills which will ensure they are ready to start Primary School. They begin to focus intensively on social and emotional skills, as well as cognitive development. This ensures they will be competent and well-rounded learners in the classroom.

We Work Closely with the Local Primary Schools in Lismore & Goonellabah and surrounding areas

Portfolios are used to record all completed work and for children to take on to their Primary School. We provide a parent information night to ensure you have all the information necessary to assist your child in this preparation. The Pre School teachers work closely with many of the local Primary Schools to ensure all the children’s needs are met for a smooth transition from Prep to School.

Our Preschool and Prep Program which offers quality day care is available from early morning and into the evening

Our child care for all ages is available from 6.30 a.m. – 6.30 p.m. Monday to Friday, except gazetted public holidays. This is to allow for working parents who need to start early to bring their child in order to start work on time. The centre operates 52 weeks a year.
