Pre Kindergarten

Pre-Kindergarten at Central Coast Adventist School (CCAS) runs during school hours on school days, with attendance options available from two to five days per week. Children are involved in a variety of play-based learning opportunities, targeted at developing their interests while also teaching foundational Literacy and Numeracy skills and knowledge.

If extended hours of care are required, Pre-Kindergarten children are eligible to attend the Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) and Vacation Care programs that are operated by the school.

Our Pre-Kindergarten teacher is supported by two teacher assistants, as well as specialist teachers who deliver lessons in Music, Sport and Information Technology. Our Pre-Kindergarten students also enjoy access to our campus Library each week.

Our dedicated team provide student portfolios throughout the year, in which they communicate children’s learning and evolving interests.

By spending time on campus, children become familiar with the school environment and community, including teachers, other students, the playground, and the location of classrooms, specialist rooms and bathrooms.

To ease the transition to school, Pre-Kindergarten children have opportunities to visit Kindergarten classrooms and meet the teachers.
