Early Education

The Early Education program provides a nurturing and effective preparation for school life for children aged from 2.8 years by January 1 of their enrolment year to 5 years. Children who have a developmental delay or disability identified by a paediatrician are eligible to attend our Early Education Program.   Each child has an Individual Learning Plan catering for their learning needs and developed in consultation with parents and school therapists. The EE program follows the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework as prescribed by the Victorian Department of Education & Training.
