A nurturing environment for your child’s first learning experience out of the home
The Shire Prep program plays a significant part in the adjustment, nurturing and training of our children in what is - for many - their
first learning experience outside of the home.
The year before your child goes to school provides an exciting opportunity to capture their God-given curiosity and sense of adventure.
At Shire Prep your child can learn to adjust and develop school readiness through play, language-based activities and other structured
learning experiences. Read here about Shire Prep’s curriculum and here about our activities.
Experience a secure, supportive transition
Because we are committed to provide a secure, supportive transition from home to school, you and your child experience the warm, friendly
and caring atmosphere created by our staff and community.
Shire Prep is open between 8.45am and 2.45pm. It is a class for four and five year olds in the year before formal school entry.
