King's Early Learning
A start full of promise
King's Early Learning Centres, affectionately known as Noah's Ark, operate at both our Reedy Creek and Pimpama campuses.
Our aim is to prepare children for the start of school. We run Junior Kindy classes for children aged two and a half to three, Senior Kindy classes for three-year-olds and provide a government approved Kindergarten program for Pre Prep children in the year prior to starting school. Pre Prep classes are specifically designed to prepare children for entry into Prep at King's Christian College.
Working in partnership with families, our programs seek to engage children in the learning process with ‘hands on’ experiences suited to children’s interests and needs. We are convinced that if children eagerly participate from an early age, a positive attitude towards lifelong learning is established.
Transition into school
Children are well prepared for transition into our school Prep program. In both centres - Reedy Creek and Pimpama - our Pre Prep rooms are located close to the Prep classrooms. During the Pre Prep year, students start to visit and use school facilities regularly, becoming even more familiar with their future surroundings. We make use of our Lower Primary library on a weekly basis as well as regular 'excursions' to other areas of the school. We have a delightful sports day during the third term, where we introduce our children to inter-house races. We enjoy regular visits from our High School students who participate in reading, games and other activities - building a strong relationship between all ages across our campuses.
Early Learning staff work with Prep teachers to ensure that the curriculum in the year before school prepares students emotionally and socially as well as providing the foundational numeracy and literacy skills that will allow them to start school with confidence.
