Redeemer's weekly newsletter

“I like Redeemer because it is a beautiful school that gives us plenty of opportunities to try out everything and find out what we really enjoy. At first, I hated sports because I thought they were boring and a waste of time and energy, but once I tried out Hockey, I really enjoyed it. Redeemer proves to us that not everything is horrible as long as we try it out.”
- Elena (Year 9)

Early Years Program (Prep-Year 2)

Our Early Years Program serves to provide our younger students with opportunities to learn and grow in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. Students are taught and guided in their learning by specialist Early Childhood trained teachers.

All of our Prep classes benefit from the work of full-time Teacher Assistants. Our Year 1 and Year 2 classes also benefit from specific Teacher Assistants working across the cohort. Each of our Teacher Assistants work closely with our classroom teachers to provide extra support and care for our students.

Our Prep to Year 2 classrooms are spacious in design, have areas for creative play, messy play, quiet corners for independent learning and work and are fully air-conditioned.

Our Early Years program focuses heavily on:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Fine and Gross Motor Development
  • Social learning
  • Handwriting
  • Face to face communication and
  • Tactile learning

2016 saw the introduction of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). In the Prep – Year 2 classes students are asked to bring a tablet device, with the iPad recommended. Devices are used in the classroom to consolidate learning of concepts through the integration of technology.
