PCS Early Learning Centre is a great opportunity for children to develop friendships, explore their interests, build confidence and enable a sense of belonging.
We are an 80 place centre designed for 2-5 year olds. We have a large outdoor play space, allowing for many different, natural, sensory play experiences. The rooms are set up in ages to cater to each unique developmental stage.
Each day involves Devotions as an opportunity for children to discover the joy of learning all about God, His creation, and how much He loves us. Children explore their interests within play contexts. Our School Readiness program provides children with the opportunity to develop their cognitive, social, emotional, language, fine motor and gross motor skills through age-appropriate group times and play-based experiences. We implement an enquiry-based curriculum approach to instil a love of discovery and learning. We encourage even our youngest of students to be 21st century learners, developing dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity.
PCS Toddler Program is designed for children aged 2 years to build on their developing social, emotional and language skills.
PCS Preschool Program offers children aged 3-4 years an opportunity to encounter a broad range of learning experiences. Preschool runs alongside the routines and programs of Prep School, enabling a smooth transition into Preparatory School the following year.
PCS Prep School Program provides children with a solid foundation of experiences that foster social and emotional development. This foundation allows for children to thrive and grow within the opportunities to engage in school readiness and integration experiences. It also enhances their ability and skills as they transition into Kindergarten the following year.
PCS Early Learning Centre operates from 6.30 am to 6.00 pm Monday to Friday, 48 weeks a year.
PCS runs a three day (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday), two day (Thursday/Friday) and 4 day and 5 day program. Our expectation is that children enrolled in Preschool at PCS will attend Prep School the following year and Kindergarten at PCS the year after.
