Early Learning

We understand that children are active investigators seeking ways to make meaning of their world. Our program is designed to encourage exploration, investigation and play both in and outdoors.

Supporting your child’s curiosity

Early Learning at Toorak College provides a structured, student-centred learning experience tailored to each student’s intellectual, emotional and social development in a supportive, enriching environment.

We recognise the innate curiosity and potential in every child and our child-led project work encourages each child to be strong, capable and resilient as they seek to understand the world and their place in it.

Our Early Learning Program is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophies of respect, curiosity and community and delivered through the curriculum framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IB-PYP).

Our vibrant curriculum is informed by the latest research on early child development, encouraging children to develop early language and mathematical skills and providing opportunity to learn through creative activity, movement and dramatic play.

We believe the learning environment is central to the learning process and take great pride in delivering our Early Learning Program in a nurturing and supportive environment designed to enrich the individual learning experience of every child.
