Early Learning Centre
First Steps to Life-long Learning
Huntingtower’s Early Learning Centre offers an enriched Pre-Prep education to 4 year old children. Within a loving and carefully structured environment, our ELC children take their first steps towards becoming successful life-long learners.
Our class is focussed on the development of socialisation skills. They learn about their exciting world during carefully planned play activities. The program nurtures the skills, values and attitudes that will form a sound basis for education in future years.
Our ELC program incorporates challenging and stimulating experiences designed to foster each child’s confidence, curiosity, independence, empathy and resilience. In the Huntingtower ELC, our young students discover that learning is fun and that life is full of adventure.
Please Note: Following the announced Government changes to Early Childhood education with increased hours required for both 3 and 4 year old kindergarten, Huntingtower has decided to conclude our 3 year old program at the end of 2023. From 2024 Huntingtower will be offering an extended hours program for 4 year old ELC.
The Early Learning Centre is specifically designed for the Pre-Prep age group. It has its own entrance and a separate, fenced play area with spaces that inspire creative, imaginative and safe play. Here, our ELC children can engage in independent learning or team up with friends and peers.
Children in our ELC have the privilege of lessons with specialist teachers from the Junior School. The class has specialist music, library and PMP (Perceptual Motor Program) lessons each week and the Learning Enrichment teacher visits regularly.
A formal transition program for Foundation takes place at the end of each year.
Huntingtower’s ELC directors and assistants foster strong relationships and a sense of belonging with all the children in their care. Their educational programs are age-appropriate, relevant and engaging.
