Welcome to prep

At Caningeraba we aim to create a relaxed, secure and supportive environment where children are encouraged to investigate and explore to their individual potential.

Our prep teachers will use the Australian Curriculum for the curriculum content in the key learning areas of English, mathematics, science, history and geography. The Early Years Curriculum Guidelines will continue to describe the contexts for learning in prep.

As well as engaging with the Australian Curriculum, our Prepstars will also learn to:

  • take on responsibilities

  • become more independent

  • respect other people

  • co-operate with others

  • make sensible choices about their health and safety

  • develop their physical skills

  • learn about their environment

  • develop their oral language

  • develop their early mathematical understanding

  • develop their early literacy understandings

  • learn how to be thinkers and problem solvers

  • use their imagination and creativity

If you would like to know more about the Australian Curriculum for the prep year please visit the Australian Curriculum website.
