The weather is gorgeous in Sydney and we have being enjoying so many wonderful activities outdoors. The children have been gardening which teaches them about sustainability and their their environment. Gardening is calming for the children, develops their self confidence and is great fun.


Happy Early Childhood Educators’ Day to all our wonderful teachers at The Prep School in Double Bay. Today we celebrate all of you who are committed to the wellbeing and healthy development of our precious children in your care. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication.

It is no surprise why this book is loved by all. Happy Friday everyone. See you all on Monday.


Science experiments provide numerous benefits for children’s development. Science experiments are fun and spark curiosity and they strengthen communication and collaborative skills.

Learning about the solar system ignites the children’s imaginations and sparks their curiosity. Learning about the solar system strengthens their cognitive skills and gives the children a deeper understanding about their world and the need to preserve and look after their precious planet.


Painting supports creativity and imagination. It builds problem solving and motor skills and fosters self esteem and confidence. In painting, the children are learning about colour and shape and they are developing an understanding of spatial awareness. Painting is fun for everyone and our children at The Prep School love it! Happy Tuesday everyone.


Love this via . There are so many benefits to open-ended play. Play is a fundamental tool for learning. Children play to make sense of their world, to learn more about themselves and each other, to develop language and to express themselves. At The Prep School we believe skills required for school and beyond should be integrated into creative, interest based learning experiences for organic and meaningful learning.

Happy Friyay to all our family and friends at the Prep School. Stay safe everyone and see you all on Monday.


We have been spending some time teaching the children about the seasons. This has been a great opportunity to explore time, change and the movement of earth around the sun.


Last week the children learnt about primary colours and were asked to use their imagination and paint whatever they wanted to. Learning colours is an important milestone for their cognitive development. Young children have great imaginations and fostering this creativity from an early age is so vital for their development and well being. What sparks your imagination?


Arts and crafts help young children to develop both gross and fine motor skills. Fine motor skills are essential for a child's school readiness and include providing practice with hand-eye coordination. Today was such a beautiful day outside. The children had a day packed with fun and engaging activities.

Sensory play has an important role in supporting children’s development. Exploring the world through sensory play will strengthen the children’s language and cognitive development as well as their motor, social and problem solving skills.


Hope everyone had a restful long weekend. Happy Tuesday from all of us at The Prep School in Double Bay.


On Saturday we celebrated world environment day. Today we had many discussions about the importance of looking after our wonderful world. We also planted melon seeds and are looking forward to seeing the results in a few days. Happy Monday to all our special Prep School families and friends.

We have continued to teach the children about National Reconciliation week. This has included raising awareness about diversity and respect for all Australians. We have done a number of activities to help the children to learn about and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, histories and achievements.


This week is National Reconciliation week where we celebrate indigenous culture and history in Australia and participate is reconciliation discussion and activities. How beautiful are these boomerangs that the children painted yesterday?

Over the past two weeks the children have been learning about aeroplanes and flying. They spent some time today using their fine motor skills and cut out beautiful aeroplanes. Fine motor skills help children perform important tasks, improves hand eye coordination and helps to develop handwriting and drawing skills. Strong fine motor skills help children understand their bodies and gives children a sense of independence which in turn strengthens their self esteem.


The children are learning about Autumn! Teaching the children about the different seasons is a great opportunity to learn about the environment and the world around them. It teaches them about change and provides a basis for early childhood education.


The children are all loving our new construction corner! Have you seen it yet? This has been fun and engaging for them and of course stimulates creativity, teamwork and strengthens their fine motor skills.
