Completed in 2020, the new Early Learning Centre includes the Boronia classroom and outdoor play area. The centre has toilet facilities, kitchen and reception area. A second room is set to open in 2022, expanding the available placements to 44 children.
A full Long Day Care program is provided with Integrated Kinder. The service hours are from 7:00 am - 6:00 pm Monday - Friday. A single fee covers the service, with a minimum booking of two days per week.
Children enrolled at the Early Learning Centre have the option to continue into their first year of Primary school at the same campus. Our Pathway to Prep program provides a supportive environment for both child and parent as they move into the first year of Primary school.
The Primary Classrooms are contained in two buildings, offering classes of Year Levels from Prep to Year 6. Class numbers are kept to a minimum as part of our commitment to smaller class sizes, providing a greater emphasis on a tailored educational approach for each child. Students in Primary participate in the Buddy Program, visiting the Early Learning Centre to connect with and share experiences with the Early Learning students. When the time comes to graduate at Year 6 level, senior Primary students visit the Officer campus and participate in the Step into Secondary program, engaging in a range of activities at Secondary level.
