Red Beach Methodist has been home to our Preschool for more than 20 years and has undergone redevelopment several times within that span.
As you walk in to our Red Beach Centre you will be warmly greeted by our kind caring teaching team and administrator. As you explore our environment, you will just love the huge outdoor all-weather play area.
The facility can cater to up to 30 children. With best teaching practice in mind, the space is child-focused and functional.
The structure of the day is organised in such a way as to maximise a variety of learning experiences and to support individual styles of learning.
Each day we have a time together on the mat where stories and songs are shared, and at the end of the day music and phonics. Each mat time is highly interactive and creates a platform for relevant activities to follow.
We include all ages in one learning space as we believe this encourages children of different ages to learn from each other. It also means children don’t have to transition through different classes as they grow.
We provide a high level of flexibility and options available for families.
Choose your session times, take children out of preschool for the school holidays with no charge, and we allow for two makeup sessions per term.
Morning Session 8.30–11.30am
Afternoon Session 11.30am–3.30pm
Seven Hour Full Day 8.30am–3.30pm
Eight Hour Full Day 8:00am–4:00pm
Please note: We recommend a minimum of two sessions per week.
We have an open door policy; parents and other interested adults are welcome to visit at any time without an appointment.
We are proud of our staff’s passion and commitment to loving, nurturing and teaching children.
Their professionalism and dedication to delivering purposeful teaching practice is excellent. Who they are and what they believe really shines through.
We are also proud to offer above and beyond what the Government requirements are, both in terms of teacher qualifications and adult-to-child ratios.
|Government Requires||We Offer|
|80% Registered and trained teachers||At least 90% Registered and trained teachers|
|1:10 Teacher to child ratio||1:6 Teacher to child ratio|
