The Early Learning School provides a quality, caring environment for 2-3 year olds, prior to entering the Education & Care Centre. The Early Learning School is the newest addition to KTC and has been custom-built for this purpose.

The Early Learning School aims to develop the “whole child” by recognising each individual child’s potential and by providing opportunities for optimum growth in the social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical areas of life, within a nurturing environment.

With the advantage of being situated on our beautiful Dover Heights campus, together with the Education & Care Centrel, Primary and High Schools, the ELS is the latest addition to the KTC family. The ELS is staffed by its own professional team of educators and assistants, who will be supported by the specialist educators on campus.

The Early Learning School offers an integrated General and Jewish Studies curriculum, within the context of age-appropriate programming and learning through experience and free play.

To this end, KTC Early Learning School endeavours to:

  • Foster caring, respect, values and independence
  • Provide opportunities for children to develop their understanding of the world around them
  • Facilitate early learning
  • Engender a love for our Jewish heritage with age-appropriate programming
  • Support families in their parenting

All principles and programs are based on the following KTC values:

  • Orthodox Jewish practices as guided by our school philosophy

  • A child-centred nurturing and learning environment
