The Early Learning Years at Perth College

The Early Learning Years at Perth College: Co-educational Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten.

Why choose an early learning years experience at Perth College for your daughter or son?

We offer a warm, caring environment, where children are provided with the opportunity to play, explore and be curious in their learning. Purposefully-planned, rich and engaging experiences ignite a sense of wonder and prompt each learner to develop skills in problem-solving, creativity and critical thinking.
