Prep at the Australian International School is an exciting place to be for our 5 and 6 year olds. Housed in the purpose-built Early Learning Village, the Prep year is a pre-elementary year which is an important transition stage preparing our young learners for their first steps into the world of ‘big school’.
Bring your little one along to experience a typical morning in Prep at the Early Learning Village, where they can immerse themselves in our Reggio Emilia environment and inquiry-based curriculum from the Early Years. This is a great opportunity to see for yourself what it’s like to be part of the warm and friendly community at the Australian International School.
You and your child will have the opportunity to meet our Elementary School leadership team, as well as take part in programs such as Literacy, Music and PE, all delivered by our expert Prep teachers.
The FREE Prep Experience will be running on Friday 20th April.
Please note this experience is for children who are age appropriate for Prep - children who have already turned 5 this year (for 2018 entry) or children who will turn 5 by April 2019 (for 2019 entry)
