Welcome to Level One - Prep
Welcome to the Prep classes section on the College website. This year we have three Prep classes at DCC. The classes in 2017 are:
Prep D - Rebecca Demond - Team Leader
Prep S - Barbara Soutter
Prep P - Heather Prescott
Prep H - Kathryn Harrison
The first year of Primary schooling is a unique and special one. It is a year of enormous growth and development in each child’s life. Our desire at DCC is to ensure your child’s transition into school is as smooth as possible. We enjoy partnering with you as parents as you are commencing your child’s schooling years.
In August each year we begin meeting with parents while children are in Kindergarten. We hold an evening called, ‘Preparing Your Child For Prep.’ We aspire to support families in preparing their children to commence schooling with confidence and enthusiasm. Children’s social skills, physical development, intellectual abilities and emotional adjustment are all equally important areas of development and each one contributes to how a child adapts to life at school.
In the November before your child’s prep year we invite the Preps to four afternoons of orientation. These are significant in establishing connection, trust and familiarising with what school looks like.
In 2017 we have 80 lovely Prep children exploring learning at DCC.
If you would like to seek more information in regards to our prep classes please be in contact with the College registrar. Tours are regularly made for new families to meet our Assistant Principal and walk through our school to feel the community spirit and see our learning community.
