There are three Prep classes, each with a full-time teacher, supported by a qualified teacher assistant. Literacy and numeracy skill acquisition features extensively in our core curriculum and is explored through the lens of inquiry based learning. Specialist classes such as Music, Physical Education and Language are also built into this rich and diverse program.

We provide extension or support as required for individual students.

At St Peters, Prep students enjoy great places and spaces to learn. The bright and cheerful Preparatory Centre is a separate, purpose-built facility, located within the lower primary precinct. The Prep classrooms and outdoor play areas provide our Prep students with a modern, stimulating environment, and each classroom has self-contained bathroom facilities. 

Some of the favourite outdoor activities are the climbing equipment and the rainforest play area, where many imaginative play scenes come to life!

The St Peters Prep experience is a stepping stone for children as they make their transition into the next phase of their primary years.
