Starting Prep is one of the many adventures your child will undertake on life’s journey. It marks the beginning of formal schooling and is the foundation on which all future learning is built. It is the first step…

The Genesis Christian College Prep year offers a supportive learning environment where children feel supported. It fosters confident, eager and enthusiastic learners, and provides experiences that enhance and give meaning to each child’s relationship with the world.


Learning in Prep:

Prep is an exciting year evidenced by significant growth and development. We acknowledge that each child’s journey is unique and recognise children as capable learners who bring knowledge and experience to the Prep setting. Our Prep program builds on this and helps to develop students who are curious, intrinsically motivated, knowledgeable, confident, reflective and independent.

The Dimensions of Learning pedagogical framework underpins the teaching and learning that takes place in Prep, and throughout the rest of the College. It has been designed to promote student learning and equip them with the knowledge and skills needed for the 21st Century, principally to think critically, communicate clearly, work collaboratively and solve problems creatively.

Children learn best when they are active participants in their learning. Prep students are engaged in hands-on activities, explorations and investigations which are meaningful and relevant. They also participate in explicit teaching episodes with focussed instruction on curriculum content.
