Beginners

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. The Beginners program, for four-year-olds, takes place within the College environment, thus introducing children to staff, facilities and College routines. We believe that every child has a unique purpose and is a blessing from God. Our aim in BCC Beginners is to work alongside families to ensure every child feels safe, secure, valued and loved.

About Beginners

Our BCC Beginners teacher is a fully qualified Early Childhood and Primary School Teacher. She is supported by an Early Childhood educator. Beginners takes place in purpose-built rooms that are safe and well-resourced, with age-appropriate facilities and materials. Beginners is a creative, explorative curriculum that helps support the social, spiritual, emotional, cognitive and physical development of each child. Children are immersed in a literacy and numeracy rich program to best prepare each child for the transition to Kindergarten. The BCC Beginners program provides fun, stimulating, nurturing and engaging learning experiences. We talk to the children in formal and informal ways about God and emphasise how much He loves them. Our aim is to support each individual child to reach their full potential.

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.  The adults can connect and support one another while their children are playing.  Our Playgroup is supported by a qualified educator and the venue facilitates fun and adventurous activities, with loads of interaction and play.  We operate each Thursday 9:30am-11:30am during school terms in the classroom adjoining Beginners (Prep), and everyone is welcome.

From our parents

We have watched our son grow in confidence and school readiness due to his attendance at BCC. 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!

Big school is no longer the unknown. What a fabulous introduction to Belmont Christian College!

It is such a warm and comfortable setting, yet right on the College grounds! He has grown in confidence, and is so excited about big school.

The program is a gentle and nurturing environment that carefully encourages the growth necessary for Kindergarten.
