Prep Year

In Prep, the Australian Curriculum and the Queensland Early Years Curriculum Guidelines are used by teachers for planning. The Early Years Curriculum Guidelines have been designed for use in all Prep classes and are designed to support active learning. The guiding philosophy behind the Guidelines is that all children are strong, capable learners. It clearly identifies enquiry-based learning and investigations as key elements.
Australian Curriculum:
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities and Social Sciences

Teachers plan for students’ learning using Early Years Curriculum Guidelines:
  • Social and Personal Learning
  • Health and Physical Learnig
  • Active Learning Processes
Children will learn through these five contexts:
  • Play
  • Real Life Situations
  • Investigations
  • Routines and Transitions
  • Focussed Teaching
Teachers’ planning responds to students’ needs and interests. Teachers monitor, assess and reflect
on students’ learning through: 
  • Understanding children
  • Building partnerships
  • Establishing flexible learning environments
  • Creating contexts for learning
  • Exploring what children learn.
