Preparatory School Readiness

Located in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, the Mount Sinai Preparatory school readiness year is a holistic preschool program led by university-qualified Early Childhood Educators who create an environment where fun and educational play experiences, spontaneous activities and guided learning encounters provide your child with the social and emotional support needed to enter into the Primary school environment. 

The school readiness curriculum is integrated throughout each day, within a variety of structured and unstructured learning experiences that cater towards a preschool learning environment. The daily routines provide your child with the emotional stability needed to ensure behaviour management, attention and focus in a preschool environment. 

The Preparatory class program is based on an emergent preschool curriculum model and is centred around the children’s individual needs, interests and abilities.

The Aim of Preparatory:

To create lifelong confident learners and effective communicators by fostering your child's natural sense of wonder and curiosity. To learn, inquire, ask questions and have the ability to think about the world around them. 

To be able to:

  • Confidently approach tasks.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of preschool age-appropriate literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Develop a phonemic knowledge of words.
  • Work in groups.
  • Follow instructions.
  • Build independence.
  • Build school readiness skills.

The above is achieved through the implementation of a Play-Based Learning Model where important life skills are reinforced such as sharing, turn-taking, problem-solving, managing emotions and effective communication skills. As well as this, the children are introduced to the Six Key Learning Areas of the NSW Kindergarten Curriculum (*English *Mathematics *Science and Technology *Human Society and Its Environment *Personal Development, Health and Physical Education * Creative Arts).
