The Taylor Cottage program at the St Luke’s Grammar School, Bayview Campus, is either a 5-day or 3-day a week Pre-School program for children, for children the year before they commence Kindergarten.
Cottage students experience a delightful introduction to the rich and exciting world of learning at school. The Cottage Program provides a developmentally appropriate blend of play-based and more formalised learning activities in a resource-rich environment. In addition to Literacy and Numeracy and experiential play, Cottage students receive specialist teaching in Music, Languages, PE, Christian Studies and Library.
The Cottage Program offers activities which will allow the children to participate at their own developmental level and to further enhance their skills by way of opportunities to practise and reinforce existing skills and to further challenge themselves through participation in new and exciting projects.
Each learning experience is aimed at enhancing growth in the areas of Social Development (Personal Development and Health), Emotional Development ((Self-esteem, peer relationships), Physical Development (Physical Education, Gross and Fine Motor Skills), Intellectual Development (Mathematics, English, Human Society and it’s Environment, Science, Creative and Practical Arts, Music, Spanish) and Language Development (Talking and Listening).
