Belmont Christian College is a great place to give your child a wonderful start to their school journey. Children in BCC Beginners are involved in College life the year before Kindergarten commences. BCC Beginners takes place within the College environment, thus introducing children to staff and College routines. Our BCC Beginners program, for four-year-olds, is a wonderful and solid foundational component of your child’s schooling. We believe that every child is a blessing from God. He has a purpose for each individual’s life and loves each one as a unique and special person. Our aim in BCC Beginners is for every child to feel safe, secure, valued and loved.
Preparing your child for school with love and care
In Beginners we offer an investigative, play-based curriculum that prepares your child for Kindergarten. This carefully planned environment is both stimulating and exciting. The children are immersed in a literacy and numeracy rich setting which offers experiences in the development of social, emotional, cognitive, physical, pre-writing, pre-reading and pre-number skills. Our aim is to support each individual child to reach their full potential. We do this through providing fun, stimulating, nurturing and engaging learning environments. We talk to the children in formal and informal ways about God and how much He loves them. We encourage children to display the fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Fully qualified, fully equipped
Our teachers are fully qualified and are approved Early Childhood Educators. Beginners takes place in purpose-built rooms that are safe and well-resourced, with age-appropriate facilities and materials. Children are encouraged to develop a positive attitude towards school, an inquiring mind and a love of learning. Throughout the day, they are encouraged to respond to what they learn and the world around them from a Christian worldview.
Belmont Christian College Community Playgroup
Belmont Christian College Community Playgroup is a safe and nurturing place for our youngest community and family members to enjoy. Each Thursday, the BCC Beginners room is transformed into a space for children to play and socialise in a fun, safe environment. Children from birth to under school age are welcome to attend with their parents/caregivers. The children will enjoy indoor and outdoor play as well as a fun group time with stories and songs lead by an Early Childhood Educator. The adults can connect and support one another while their children are playing. Our Playgroup is supported by a qualified Early Childhood Educator and the venue is a purpose built facility. We operate each Thursday 10am-12pm during school terms, and everyone is welcome.
From our parents
We sent our son to prep and he loved it! We have watched him grow in confidence and school readiness. We can clearly see that this year is the foundation for his Kindergarten experience. We are so excited about our son’s school future now that he has had his time in prep!
Big school is no longer the unknown. What a fabulous introduction to Belmont Christian College!
Sending our son to prep was a great decision. It is such a warm and comfortable setting, yet right on the College grounds! He has grown in confidence at prep, and is so excited about big school.
The prep program is a gentle and nurturing environment that carefully encourages the growth necessary for Kindergarten.
