    There seems to be a lot of faces and misinformation flying about here...

    Pre-prep is privately run year of childcare or kindy... it's not formal schooling, it's not part of the ed-qld curriculum and it's pretty much in place of the old "preschool" room in private day cares.
    Yes .... there does.

    I would think that a staffer of EQ you would be a little more informed. Pre-Prep describes the year before children enter Prep (which incidentally isn't a compulsory, formal year of schooling either ).

    Pre-Prep can be provided in a long day care setting or sessional Kindergarten setting and C&K are EQ's preferred supplier of Pre-Prep programs. The major difference for us as parents of children who have (and currently do) attend a C&K program is the curriculum (Building Waterfalls), the resources and the staff (all university qualified).

    While some children (particularly the older ones) MAY be ready by the time they enter prep, C&K centres encourage problem solving skills, socialisation, social construction of knowledge and creative thinking ....

    .
    New government regulations now mean that many kindy programs, not just C&K's have university qualified teachers. Dozens of previously C&K centre's have now chosen new funding bodies such as The Gowrie AND have maintained their qualified staff and quality environments and resources. They are still run by parent management committees and are not-for-profit.
