Nestled within the John Paul College Primary Campus, the Early Learning Precinct state-of-the-art facilities provide early learning for children from six weeks of age in our Early Learning Centre, continuing into our Kindergarten (Pre-Prep program), then transitioning through to our Primary School.
The Early Learning Precinct provides a caring, safe and secure environment for children. Throughout their journey in the early years, the children’s right to experience the joy of childhood is fundamental, and learning is promoted through play, and intentional experiences and interactions. Children are viewed as competent, curious, natural researchers who are full of knowledge and potential and are interested in connecting to the world around them.
Our Early Years Program is influenced by the principles and practices of the
Reggio Emilia Approach
, which values the role children have in co-constructing their own learning. Through play and inquiry, we promote excitement for learning, responding to each child’s individual ideas and interests. Our Early Childhood Educators offer children the freedom to explore, to engage deeply in their projects and inquiries, and to be physically active within their nature playscapes.
Exceeding National Quality Centre
As an Exceeding National Quality Standard centre our curriculums are guided by the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (Belonging, Being & Becoming) and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline.
