Calrossy offers a three day Prep program for children in the year before school. This program caters for children eligible to start Kindergarten the following year. Prep offers an environment designed to motivate individual learning, encourage small group collaboration and celebrate peer achievement.
There is a maximum of 20 children in each Prep class, which are staffed by a qualified Early Childhood teacher and Learning Assistant. The classrooms contain different spaces for quiet and active play as well as access to an engaging and fun outdoor play area.
The educational program has a focus on pre-literacy and pre-numeracy skills as well as social and emotional competence. This occurs in a happy and supported learning environment. Calrossy’s music program begins in Prep, with access to weekly specialist lessons. The students also have a Christian Studies lesson each week and visit the school library.
