Early Learning Centre

Co-educational Pre-Kindy and Kindergarten

We take a holistic view of child development, with each stage of our curriculum designed to prepare your child for the next stage of schooling. As the first step in the educational journey, our Pre-Kindy and Kindergarten are co-educational to create a sense of familiarity with the environment your child already knows. By Pre-Primary, your child has settled into an established routine and is ready to transition to single sex schooling.

Child-led learning

Our exciting play-based pedagogy merges the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme with Reggio Emilia principles. Our teachers observe your child's play and listen to their questions to find out what interests them, and then create opportunities to explore their passions further.

In the process of having fun, your child will be developing the foundations for literacy and numeracy – and a lifelong love of learning.

Scotch College's campus adjoins Claremont Lake. We take full advantage of our unique position to offer an authentic nature play programme, with Thursdays devoted to Bush School.

As an IB School, we nurture students with a global outlook. This starts in pre-Kindy, at an age when the brain is very receptive to a second language, with all children learning French.

Small class sizes

We know children learn best when they feel safe and have a sense of belonging. Smaller class sizes allow our teachers to cater to the individual needs of your son or daughter. We regularly assess their skills in a range of areas to help us tailor their learning programme. All children are screened by our Speech Pathologist and Occupational Therapist, so we can identify early any underlying issues that may need attention.

A choice of Pre-Kindy programmes 

We offer a range of options to suit your son or daughter. Choose from:
A 2-day programme – Monday and Tuesday
A 3-day programme – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 
A 5-day programme – Every weekday.

Full time Kindergarten

In order to best prepare your son or daughter for school, we only offer a 5-day Kindergarten programme. Hours for all Pre-Kindy and Kindergarten programmes are 8.30am to 3.00pm.

If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a personal tour of our ELC, please contact the Admissions Office on 9383 6809.
