Prep at NCC


Welcome to Prep

Are you looking for a quality local school for your child to begin their education? We believe that the success of your child is dependent on the development and nurturing of positive and proactive relationships and partnerships between our staff, yourself and your child.


Dedicated Teachers – A Great Beginning

At NCC Cooroy, you will find quality educators who are passionate about their students’ learning and development. Mrs Sara Fatnowna and Mrs Allison Parkinson are our Prep teachers and Mrs Allison Blandin de Chalain and Mrs Rebecca Copeland are our Prep Teacher Assistants. Our teachers thoroughly understand younger children and know how important it is for Prep students to get a great start on their education journey.

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 classrooms situated in a beautiful, safe parkland setting.

Supervised Prep eating areas.

Dedicated, fenced playground for Early Learners (Prep-Year 1).

Mini computer labs next to the Prep classrooms.

‘Buddy Program’ with Year 6 students.

Music and Auslan.

Library once per week.

Specialised Teacher Aide support.

Gymnastics and early learners’ swimming and sporting activities.

Service projects.

Digital Technology.



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.


Ideal Learning Environment

NCC Cooroy is located on 30 acres 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.
