Chevallum Prep

Please note for general enrolment information and forms please click on the Enrolments Tab at the top left of the page.

At Chevallum State School Prep children learn about themselves while learning with and about others. We believe this is a most effective route to confidence, resilience and independence.

Our Prep Program allows children to learn important preparatory knowledge, skills and experiences to transition them into their formal education. This will include the foundations of early reading, writing and maths learning. Our personalised curriculum implementation is underpinned by our belief in educating the whole child. This approach ensures a balanced program, which embraces active learning processes, social and personal learning and health and physical learning

Chevallum Prep offers:

  • cutting edge in educational practice
  • rich learning and real world experience through (Thinking Play based on Reggio Emilia principles)
  • education for the individual
  • multi-age classrooms
  • committed, experienced teachers
  • culturally rich environment
  • teaching kitchen garden (Stephanie Alexander Program)
  • strong community of  involved parents
