Play and Learn

(PAL)

Our classes are conducted one morning per week from 9:00am-12:30pm the last three weeks of Terms 3. Our fun, engaging program and well-constructed schedule keeps children excited and captivated. Introducing their learning in bite sizes stimulates their learning capability.

Confident to start Kindy

We welcome you and your child to join us for this fun introduction to learning designed to help them feel confident and ready to start Kindy. Our program fosters a fun and engaging school readiness experience for your child and gives them a head start for their transition from home into school.

Bite Sized Learning

Children are invited into the learning journey through the power of stories. Imaginations are stimulated and learning is experienced in bite sizes with powerful outcomes that stimulate social and academic development. Children engage in learning through storytelling and gain pre-literacy and pre-numeracy skills.

Seamless Transition

A positive and seamless transition experience from home to school life awaits your child. Attending our PAL class in a classroom setting gives children the opportunity to become acquainted with the school community, and feel comfortable, safe and excited to go to big school. On their first day, they will find friendly, familiar faces, adapt with ease and experience the enjoyment of social interaction while making new friends.

PAL is Complimentary

We care about children and believe each child is a gift from God. As a service to our community, our PAL class is complimentary to parents who want their child to participate and there is no obligation to enrol your child at PBCS. Of course, we would love to welcome your family to start their educational journey in our caring Christian learning community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I come and visit the school?
Yes. We look forward to welcoming you to our School and providing you with a personal tour anytime throughout the school year. Come and see our campus, meet our staff, and chat with us about how we educate, nurture and care for children. Click below to register for a personalised tour.
Do we have to be Christians or attend church to enrol?
No. We embrace families from varying backgrounds and faiths, including those who are not churchgoers. However, all families with children enrolled at Pacific Brook are required to support and respect the Christian beliefs and values.
It is a requirement for Pacific Brook to deliver all teaching in alignment with the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) guidelines. However, as a distinctly Christian School, the curriculum is taught and framed by the Christian worldview and through a Biblical lens.
Does PAL include structured learning?
Yes. Play And Learn classes provide a structured program that helps children engage and explore regulated learning including pre-literacy and pre-numeracy skills. Children are also introduced to the cultural aspects of school life. Their play break with “big school kids” helps them make connections and feel at home in the school environment. Children feel ready to transition to Kindy at the end of the Play And Learn program.
