Just as taking the first footsteps are an exciting stage in a child’s growth and development, the start of formalised learning is an equally momentous time.
Parents want to be sure their child will receive the best possible care and be in safe hands during this important transition period.
Tintern Grammar’s Early Learning Centre has been recognised for its innovative programs and leading-edge facilities. The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development has awarded us top marks, for ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’.
Our highly qualified, caring staff and wonderful semi-rural environment set Tintern Grammar’s Early Learning Centre apart.
We are able to offer your child both full and part-time places in our Three-Year-Old Kindergarten, and Pre-Prep for Four-Year-Olds.
The Centre features a combination of carefully designed play centres, with both indoor and outdoor areas. Children begin the exciting process of learning through play-based activities and interaction with their classmates.
Tintern Grammar’s Early Childhood Program has been formulated to enhance a child’s natural curiosity, and sense of wonder about the world. It confers confidence to explore, investigate and experiment, in a secure and supportive environment.
We help to build literary skills with the respected ‘Letterland’ program, which gives children an exciting introduction to letters and words. At the same time, a range of activities encourages students to discover and explore the world of numbers.
Our Perceptual Motor Program lets children develop their motor skills as they take part in body and spatial awareness activities and Physical Education classes guide them as they learn the basics of sport.
Tintern Grammar’s Music Centre plays a part in the Early Learning Centre program too. Children learn about a variety of instruments, the wonder of music-making and how to produce different sounds.
The School’s semi-rural surroundings are enhanced by ‘Tinternwood’, a fully-equipped, working farm, set in the midst of our campus.
Kinder and Pre-Prep students eagerly look forward to visits, and supervised ‘hands-on’ activities with the animals are always a highlight.
As our young students reach the end of their Four-Year-old Pre-Prep program, they have been given the necessary skills, and educational grounding to enable them to enter our Junior School studies with confidence.
You can be assured your child’s educational journey will get off to a great start at Tintern Grammar’s Early Learning Centre.
