Prep

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our vision at Chancellor for prep is to empower early learners to develop a passion for learning.

At Chancellor State College these years of schooling offer a transition phase to the Primary years of education in our P-12 learning community. In Queensland, children are required to undertake Prep prior to Year 1. Prep is a full-time program that children attend from Monday to Friday during normal school hours, from 8:50am to 3pm.

Children come to our school with a diversity of understandings, capabilities and dispositions that have developed as part of their social and cultural experiences since birth. These provide a rich and valuable starting point for learning in school.

Teachers support learning by linking the knowledge valued at home and the knowledge valued at school. Learning experiences encourage children to make links between their prior kno​wledge and new learning.

Families and carers make significant contributions to children’s learning and development before and after children enter the preparatory setting. Chancellor staff look forward to building partnerships with families to develop a learning environment to make this learning transition smooth and successful​.

What do we believe?

Children learn best when they:

  • Make connections
  • Participate in decision-making
  • Make choices and contribute
  • Share their opinions and experiences
  • Discuss their learning
  • Learn in a responsive and supportive social environment
  • Learn through multi-sensory experiences
  • Participate actively in experiences that engage them emotionally, physically, cognitively and socially

Learning occurs through:

  • Play
  • Investigation
  • Real life situations
  • Routines and transitions
  • Focused teaching and learning

Curriculum decision-making involves teachers and students:

  • Planning
  • Monitoring and assessing
  • Reflecting
  • Interacting
