A caring and nurturing environment for students to grow and flourish
Why choose an early learning years experience at Perth College for your child?
In the early years, children are seen as strong and capable learners, with infinite potential and an inherent capacity to theorise, be resourceful and creative. Our environment supports children to share their theories and thinking, and build on their existing knowledge. We engage with children, families and the community in partnership to encourage our youngest learners to reach their personal best.
Rich teacher guided and explicit teaching is balanced alongside intentional play and experiential learning. There is a strong focus on early literacy and numeracy skills, as well as inquiry learning skills. Children are provided with challenge and choice, with their rights as agents in the learning process upheld. All staff are early childhood trained from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 2 and are experts in age appropriate development and care deeply about each individual child and their family.
Program and Experiences
Early Years’ classes engage in a range of specialist offerings and co-curricular experiences, which expand as the children grow and develop.
Boys are welcome at Perth College in our PC Playtime, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs, the School is girls-only from Pre-Primary and beyond.
Pre-Kindergarten Program for girls and boys
We offer a choice of 3, 4 or 5 day options for families to choose from. Pre-Kindergarten hours of operation are from 9.00 am to 2.00 pm.
Children must have turned 3 years old by 30 June to enrol in that year and can only commence attending once they have turned 3.
Families requiring care before 9.00 am and after 2.00 pm can access our Out of School Hours Care (OHSC) program.

The School remains for girls-only from Pre-Primary and beyond, with single stream classes until Year 3. Each year we focus on developing unique programs, tailored to the needs of our early learning students, to spark a love of learning and growth in a safe, caring environment.
