The Prep program at St Peters embraces the College’s philosophy of providing a quality education through teaching excellence, nurturing pastoral care and individual attention for all students.

All learning occurs under the umbrella of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB PYP), which involves delivery of the Australian Curriculum through facilitated student inquiry. Through the Australian Curriculum framework and IB PYP, the St Peters early childhood curriculum guides our students to achieve academic and personal excellence.

The PYP:

  • addresses both academic needs and social and emotional wellbeing;
  • encourages students to develop independence and to take responsibility for their own learning;
  • supports students’ efforts to gain understanding of the world and to function within it; and
  • helps students to establish personal values as a foundation upon which international-mindedness will function.
