We believe the critical features of our classroom are to value the unique qualities of each child and assist each child to develop to his/her full potential. Our classroom environment is created with the philosophy and practices of TEACCH. The TEACCH structures foster children with disabilities to better understand their environment and encourage clear communication, whilst building independence with the use of visual cues, routines and organisation. Students work 1:1 with staff on their individual goals which include literacy, numeracy and functional independent skills. Other specialised programs the students attend are Home Economics, Art, Music and Sport. Play continues to be an important part of the Pre Primary program and is essential to a child’s development.

We have had a great start to the year and are all having a fun time in our Kindy/Pre Primary class!
