The Early Learner

Curiosity and Exploration in the world

On entering the exciting world of the Early Learning Centre in Bellevue Hill, each boy is an active discoverer of his new world.

An innovative, colourful and adventurous curriculum leads our youngest Scots boys along the beginning of their Scots ELC learning pathway in the Cubs (three year olds) and Lions (four year olds) programs.

Harnessing a boy's natural curiosity and energy, these programs are informed by Reggio Emilia principles and encourage each boy to explore and discover his world.

Within the Centre's supportive and active learning environment, every boy learns to explore new ideas with confidence. As they become more courageous, boys discover and question cause and effect in the world around them. They express their curiosity and wonder with their ever growing vocabulary moving from 'what?' to 'why?' and 'how?' questions.

As they move through to Kindergarten and then Year 1, this paves the way for more formal schooling with writing, spelling and numeracy a focus for learning. It is within this phase that the five pillars for literacy learning are formed - phonemic awareness, systematic phonics, vocabulary, reading fluency and comprehension. And as the boys' enthusiasm to learn increases so does their potential.
