Early Learning Centre

With a highly stimulating curriculum, carefully selected educators and state-of-the-art facilities, our Early Learning Centre (ELC) is the perfect place to learn in those all-important years prior to Reception.

Playgroup (designed for ages 1 to 3 years)

The program is designed to:

  • provide children with play activities that are stimulating and innovative within a safe environment
  • provide children and parents with opportunities to interact in both Greek and English in appropriate and purposeful ways
  • enhance parents’ understanding about their children’s needs and development; and
  • contribute to children’s social development through activities that promote sharing and cooperation with others.

Pre-entry (designed for ages 3 to 4 years)

The program provides an encouraging first step into education for 3-4 year olds.

Early education is crucial, as by age 3, children have reached their highest potential for new learning. Our Pre-entry program is specifically designed to provide your child a ‘jump start’ to education in a high quality, nurturing and safe environment.

Recognising shapes, colours, drawing, singing and playing alongside others are all examples of behaviours your child learns in their first few years of life. Each session combines teacher-directed activities and supervised play.

Children also have the opportunity to visit the College’s Resource Centre for storytelling and book borrowing.

Pre-school (designed for ages 4 to 5 years)

The program is specifically designed to prepare children for their formal years of schooling in Reception and beyond.

With this preparation comes the introduction of activities that resemble the routine and learning patterns of Reception.

From self-development exercises, language, and communication lessons to religious education – every child is exposed to a deeper, articulated learning experience whilst enjoying the flexibility and social interaction of free play.
