Our program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) as outlined in the National Curriculum and the Queensland Kindergarten Early Learning Guidelines (QKLG). We offer numeracy, literacy and Japanese classes, as well as a dedicated sports program, yoga classes and technology-based activities.
Children also have access to extra-curricular activities such as dancing, tennis and more through approved external providers that attend the Centre.
The ‘Secret Garden’ Pre-Prep Program is available to children who turn four years old by 30 June in the year prior to attending Preparatory.
Degree-qualified, early childhood teachers deliver the Program and educational learning outcomes are based on both the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline and the National Curriculum Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
Children in the Program receive exceptional academic, sporting, cultural, social and technological educational experiences and are active participants in Saint Stephen’s College’s events and resources. This is beneficial in supporting children through their transition from Kindergarten to Preparatory school.
Children are required to attend the program for 15 hours per week (over two or more days a week) for 40 weeks of the year.
