Our highly qualified and caring educators, small class sizes and holistic curriculum enable the development of each child’s unique abilities, with differentiated learning programs fostering skills of inquiry, independent thinking and creativity. 

An Engaging
Curriculum

At the Redlands Preparatory School, students develop a strong foundation in key Literacy and Numeracy skills, and our Units of Enquiry program encourages students to ask questions and problem solve to become critical thinkers, risk takers and effective learners. A core aim is to ensure the best foundations are laid for children to become confident, independent and passionate lifelong learners as well as socially aware as they prepare for their studies in Junior School.

Within the classroom, each child is given the opportunity to work at their own level of ability. French, Music, Physical Education and Library are all taught by specialist teachers.
