Dedicated Teachers - A Great Beginning
At NCC Cooroy, you will find quality educators who are passionate about their students' learning and development. 

Play-Based Learning
In Prep we begin teaching by using a ‘play based’ system with specific goals and outcomes for your child’s first year of education. Learning can take many forms:
    • Outdoor education- gross motor skills
    • Numeracy focused learning
    • Language focused learning
    • Investigating the natural world
    • Personal and social learning
    • Imagining and responding
All learning is done in small groups, with rotations of activities. Consideration is always given to individual student abilities and interests.

Learning follows the Australian Curriculum for English, Maths, Science and Social Sciences with Art and HPE.

Specialist Prep Facilities and Features
Prep children have particular needs compared to older students who are already well on their educational journey. At Noosa Christian College we have purpose-built Prep facilities and special care for our Early Learners. These include: 
  • Large classroom situated in a beautiful, safe parkland setting.
  • Supervised Prep eating area.
  • Dedicated, fenced playground for Early Learners (Prep-Year 1).
  • Mini computer lab under the same roof.
  • 'Buddy Program' with Year 6 once per week reading in the Library together and a once per term whole school Buddy Day where Prep are involved with activities with their Year 6 buddies.
  • Specialised Teacher Aide support.
  • Early learners swimming and athletics carnivals with novelty activities.

Ideal Learning Environment
NCC Cooroy is located on 11 hectares of semi-rural land offering your child plenty of opportunities to learn, play and grow in the great outdoors. The campus has stimulating play equipment, neat student gardens, bird coup, large sporting areas, and a forested area with a creek.

Small School - Big Heart
Our College may be small in size but we are big in so many ways. Most of all, your child will not be lost in the numbers. We aim for smaller class sizes, with quality academic outcomes. There is a strong sense of community within the school and our extended school family. You'll find a warm and welcoming environment in which your child has a valued place within our school.

N.B. Students looking to enrol in Noosa Christian College for Prep, must be five years of age by 30th June, as per Education Queensland’s policy on the commencement of school.
