Dalby State School's Prep Program

The prep year will build continuity between your child’s prior experiences and their future learning at school.  At prep children will participate in a range of learning situations that encourage them to actively learn through their senses. 

Your child will learn through the five contexts of learning:

· Routines and transitions

· Focused learning and teaching

· Investigations

· Real-life situations                              

· Play

Dalby State School's  prep program incorporates the Australian Curriculum focusing on the areas of English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography. Our Prep program also encourages children and teachers to work as partners in developing their learning through the early learning areas of Social and Personal Learning, Health and Physical Learning, Language Learning and Communication, Early Mathematical Understandings and Active Learning Processes. 

Throughout the year the children will take on responsibilities and become more independent. They will be supported and encouraged to respect and cooperate with others and to make sensible choices about their health and safety. Their physical skills, oral language and early literacy understandings and early mathematical understandings will be developed. They will learn how to be thinkers and problem solvers while using their imagination and creativity. Their knowledge of their environment will also be enhanced.


Every day counts in Prep

We know that your child will find their prep year full of learning and fun. It will lay a solid foundation for their future school years. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns about your child. It is our aim to provide a caring and supportive environment that will nurture your child’s growth.
