Early Years

 

Early Years Sector
This sector provides quality educational programs across the two parts of the campus.
Our ECDP provides services and support to children and their families from birth to 5 years who have been identified with support needs. From playgroup to kindergarten to pre-prep, the ECDP focus is on supporting both students and their families as they begin their educational journey. Play based and child centred, programs are highly individualised to meet the unique needs of each child during this period of time when their learning is most rapid. Support is also offered to other early childhood settings. Children and families are carefully supported through this transition period into full time schooling. Many ECDP students transition into mainstream schools in the local area while others transition into the school age program at Mount Ommaney Special School.
The early years program focuses on helping young learners access the Australian curriculum and develops learning skills through explicit teaching, the use of Intensive Interaction and sensory and play based activities. The development of academic, social, behavioural and communication skills are a high priority, as is making sure that school is a safe and enjoyable experience. The program also supports families in transitioning their child from the ECDP or local service providers to special school.
