Ages 4 turning 5

RCC Pre Kindy prepares children for their first year of school in a safe, Christian environment that fosters their curiosity and creativity through fun, stimulating programs. Pre Kindy assists children in becoming confident, responsible individuals who have a strong sense of their created self-worth. They learn the value of serving others at school, at home and in the community.

As RCC Pre Kindy kids play with their friends they are safe to ask questions, solve problems and develop new ideas. RCC Pre Kindy kids feel safe and supported in their explorations as they develop the social, literacy and numeracy skills necessary for a great start to Kindergarten.

Pre Kindy is a 3-day program that operates during school hours Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Academic Curriculum

At RCC we believe that all Truth is God’s Truth. When Truth is sought, it will be found. Therefore, all students must be given the opportunity to be taught, to seek, and to find Truth. A student-centred, flexible and responsive pedagogical model provides for the needs and growth of the students. Therefore, learning and assessment is purposefully designed for feedback and growth. 

Pre-Kindy utilises a play-based curriculum, the Early Years Learning Framework, aligned with the NSW Board of Studies syllabus. The Early Years Learning Framework is a nationally accredited framework. Its three concepts characterise children’s lives: Belonging, Being and Becoming. This framework builds on Biblical concepts whereby a child’s development and learning occurs through the relationships and connections they build with God, family, community, church family, and their school. Using this curriculum allows for a smooth integration into RCC’s K-10 Literacy and Numeracy program with outcomes modelled on current worldwide research.

Additionally, RCC Pre Kindy provides sporting, creative and performing arts and excursion experiences throughout the year for the students.

Access to Learning & Learning Environment

At RCC we believe that all students are created in God’s image, possess unique experiences, abilities and motivations that influence how they learn and are capable of learning well. Therefore, every child deserves the grace and opportunity to be understood, catered for, celebrated and faithfully taught to learn well.

RCC Pre Kindy provides students with stimulating internal and external learning environments that facilitate individual and group play, structured and unstructured learning opportunities and safe exposure to their future school environment.

RCC Pre Kindy enables student access to learning through providing a teacher student ratio of 1:10, and specifically adapting the physical environment, educational content, learning processes and outcomes to extend and support each student as necessary.

RCC Pre Kindy also welcomes NDIS supporting specialists to the classroom to enhance the school’s ability to understand and respond to the specific needs of the student.

Pastoral Care

At RCC we believe that all students learn well when they are safe, connected, and belong so they can have the courage to make the mistakes that lead to true learning. Therefore, every student deserves the opportunity to listen, to be heard, to be challenged, to fail and to succeed.

Pre Kindy pastoral care is founded on constant communication to develop powerful, honest relationships between parents and RCC staff. This ensures that RCC staff can support student’s wellbeing through being aware of the challenges and changes the student is facing as they begin their school journey.
