Foundation

 

PrepunderThe Foundation area consists of three classes and has a friendly, positive atmosphere which creates a sense of belonging and enthusiasm for learning.

Our new Early Learning Centre was opened in March of 2018. The new centre includes modern classrooms with the latest interactive technology, a presentation stage, mezzanine space for quiet activities, Parent Engagement area, meeting spaces for parent support sessions and indoor toilets.

Within the three classrooms, there is plenty of space for children to work independently or in small groups.  A vital element within the child's home group, is  explicit focused teaching of the key subject areas of Literacy and Numeracy 

The three full time classroom teachers work with the support of a learning coach, teacher’s assistant and a Reading Recovery trained teacher for literacy support, in a collaborative environment. External support is provided by a Speech Therapist and  Occupational Therapist

Our staff provide learning experiences that are guided by the Victorian curriculum, with emphasis on children’s individual learning levels. We believe it is vital that data be gathered to determine what a student knows, that students are explicitly taught the skills they need to achieve their next growth point, and that asssessments be used to check learning has been achieved. 

The Foundation area welcomes and encourages partnerships with parents in their child’s learning journey.  Opportunities are provided for parents to discover how they can support their child's learning.
