Important School Information: Fernhill Preparatory
Fernhill Preparatory specialises in Foundation and Intermediate Phase Education. We believe it is during these educational phases where solid foundations are laid for everything that follows in life. Children are learning to learn. Our aim is to maximise the learning opportunities that will equip each child with the necessary skills for life-long learning. In the process we are empowering a future generation of independent, confident and skilled students who are enabled to accept and conquer the challenges of the 21st Century.
Fernhill Preparatory offers an enriched leading edge
curriculum which includes Smart Words, Maths and the
Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP). The PMP is one of
Australia's most highly rated educational programmes. The PMP is a sequential development
programme which aims to develop the child's
perceptions and understanding of himself and his
environment through movement/motor experiences.
Children who enjoy the learning journey are happy,
excited children who want to come to school and are
enthusiastic about new experiences and information.
Our dynamic, structured, stimulating curriculum is fully CAPS compliant. It aims to be preventive rather than curative and your child receives ample experiences to master basic foundational and preparation skills in a number of areas. These include literacy, numeracy, motor, memory, visual, auditory, social and life skills. The child who masters these skills will have the self-confidence to explore his environment and enjoy his learning journey - equipping them for life.
