Exploring – a wide and varied curriculum

Numeracy and Literacy are the key to unlocking a child’s education and they are a main part of the curriculum at Pre-Prep. Equally as important though is the introduction and development of other subjects to deliver a full rounded education for our 4 to 7 year olds.
