I’m confident in having my kids at Freshwater Christian College because I know that it’s a beautiful environment and because my kids are loved and nurtured and their individuality is respected.
More Than Just Prep
Prep is where the sheer joy in learning is discovered. We begin by focusing on investigating, understanding and effective problem-solving skills. Our preps engage in activities that start to develop early writing, reading and mathematical skills. Foundational work in English (with a strong focus on phonetic awareness) and Mathematics are introduced after this to develop the skills necessary for a smooth entry into Year One.
At this level of early childhood development, it is important that our program is flexible so that we can cater for the needs of the children individually and as a group. Social skills (sharing and caring for others) and role-play are encouraged as an important part of learning. We encourage our Preps to be active learners through play and hands-on activities that develop their basic skills.
What sets us apart at freshwater:
- Caring teachers & aides
- Play based curriculum approach
- Strong focus on the individual child
