Enrolment periods are crucial times for parents seeking to enter their children in institutions that provide the best learning environment. To allow sufficient assessment opportunities for families wishing to get their children started on Christian education and development, Citipointe Christian College Brisbane (CCCB), a leading Australian Christian school, announces that preparatory enrolments and interviews are welcomed throughout the academic year.
The College holds interviews for Preparatory/Year 1 candidates throughout the year in the year prior to commencement. The Preparatory stage is an effective means of assisting children with the transition from Pre-school to Year 1.
"All children who are turning six may not be ready for the Year 1 classroom," explains a CCCB representative. "The Year 1 program at Citipointe Christian College is comprehensive and we need to ensure as far as possible that the children who are beginning Year 1 are ready for this step."
As a leading Christian independent school Brisbane families turn to for the provision of a strong Christian education for their children, CCCB aims to implement programs designed at varying stages of development at a young age level to help all children find a positive start to their learning years.
The school administers a school readiness assessment and participates in constructive discussions with parents to effectively determine whether a child is ready to enter Year 1 or would benefit from a year in Preparatory class. "The objective for the Preparatory children is to give them another year to grow and develop readiness and maturity," shares the representative.
Founded in 1978, CCCB combines the pursuit of educational excellence with a genuine Christian perspective. Enrolment in this institution's Preparatory program will successfully guide a young child through the first steps towards learning in a disciplined and co-educational environment with strong pastoral care. As the child progresses through primary school and continues to receive exemplary Christian instruction from one of the best independent high schools in Brisbane, he or she will develop academic rigour and a strong commitment to Christian ethics—values and skills that CCCB believes will prepare students for a highly competitive professional future.
For children who are successfully accepted into CCCB's Preparatory program, they will experience more freedom, play, and discovery, and will be given more outdoor and gross motor development time. They will wear a uniform, have their own desk to look after, and come into a normal structured school environment where they can easily establish a daily routine. "This program especially builds early learning foundations and ensures that children are prepared and ready when they begin their formal years of schooling," adds the representative. "Children can face the year with confidence and expectations of success."
