Our Grade 000 to Grade 0 curriculum is common to all Crawford schools and is regularly reviewed to ensure a steady acquisition of age appropriate skills.

We use the THRASS system of literacy which ensures an excellent foundation for future literacy and this programme is carried through into the Crawford Preparatory Schools.

As well as tertiary trained, pre-school teachers, we have specialists to teach the following subjects as part of the daily curriculum:

Grade 000

Music

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum allows our children to build steadily on skills and concepts in the areas of Literacy, Mathematics and Life Skills. Our specialist teachers enhance the work done by our wonderfully creative class teachers, making every day one of love, laughter and learning.
Our curriculum at Crawford Village also includes a daily session of neuro cognitive exercises. These are designed to enhance developmental skills and fill in the development ‘gaps’ created by modern lifestyles.

In addition our teachers have trained in assessment and remediation so that in conjunction with the caring parent those children experiencing difficulties can be assisted.

Free play is a vital part of a young child’s education.
