For a Carmichael student, Prep is the beginning of their formal learning adventure. Your child will bring to the classroom a natural wonder and curiosity about the world and their place within it.

The Early Years will provide a critical foundation for lifelong learning and the acquisition of life skills. Early learning at Carmichael College takes place in a nurturing, supportive and stimulating environment that strives to meet the needs of all learners. Teachers regularly pray for the students in their classes. During these formative years our teachers assess, monitor and respond to each child’s learning.

Our partnership with parents is fundamental to the development of our students.

Excellent Education

We believe excellent education occurs when the environment the students are learning in is supportive but challenging, relational and respectful, visible and explicit and where students can exceed their own expectations.

Our pedagogical approach, based on a “Reading to Learn” approach, ensures that learning is made explicit for all students, and learning intentions are clear. There are opportunities for practice and re-learning and feedback is welcomed. A classroom that is successful is a classroom where mistakes can be made as a process of learning and where students can feel safe to do so.
