At Saint Mary's Catholic College, we believe that every child deserves a strong foundation for their educational journey. Our Get Set for Prep Program is designed with your little one in mind, ensuring they have the best start to their formal schooling experience.

​What is Get Set for Prep?

Get Set for Prep is a child-centered readiness program that focuses on nurturing and scaffolding the essential skills needed for a successful transition to Prep. We understand that starting school can be both exciting and daunting for young learners, and our program aims to make this transition positive, safe, and empowering.

Key Program Components:​

  1. Social and Emotional Wellbeing:
    • We prioritize your child's emotional development, helping them build resilience, self-awareness, and empathy. Through engaging activities, we create a supportive environment where friendships blossom and confidence grows.

  2. Early Literacy and Numeracy Concepts:

    • Our program introduces foundational literacy and numeracy skills. From letter recognition to counting, we ignite curiosity and lay the groundwork for future learning.
