Discover PREP at Freshwater!

In Prep we focus on investigating, understanding and effective problem solving as well as developing a sheer joy in learning. Initially, Prep students will engage in meaningful activities that foster early writing, reading and mathematical skills. Foundational work in English and Mathematics will then be introduced to develop the skills necessary for a smooth transition entry to Year One. Children will also have experience in other Key Learning Areas, including music and Japanese. The Jolly Phonics program is used to develop strong phonemic awareness and sound sentence writing.

At this level of early childhood development, it is important for our program to be flexible and to cater to group and individual needs. Social skills (sharing and caring for others) and role-play are encouraged as an important part of learning, leading to a better understanding of oral and written work.
