Our Infants program at a glance
We provide a relevant, meaningful and individualised curriculum for all students across the Pre-School to Year 2 Range. Our curriculum programs are underpinned by the belief that children should be supported in developing their emerging interests and talents.

To achieve this, we provide a broad range of programs which ensure that our students possess the knowledge, skills and social values necessary to achieve success within their life long learning journey. If you are a prospective parent, please feel free to contact us to see how we can support your child in their critical early years of schooling.


Curriculum
At Australia Street Infants school we ensure that provide the highest standard of teaching and learning experiences to your child. We ensure that we adhere to the     NSW Board of Studies syllabus requirements for K-2 whilst engaging as a staff in regular professional development.

 

Technology
All classrooms in the school are equipped with an Interactive whiteboard and all students have access to laptop computers and iPads on demand. In saying this however, we believe that technology should facilitate engaging and interactive learning. As such we provide meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for students to create and engage rather than simply sitting and doing! Over the past few years we have supported students in engaging in video conferencing links to overseas countries, create podcasts and participate in interactive lessons in the classrooms. 

Extra Curricula Programs
At Australia Street, we provide a variety of extra-curricula opportunities for your child to experience after school. Currently we offer Art, Mandarin, Cooking and Tae Kwon Do. These classes are offered in conjunction with our Outside School Hours Care program.

String Ensemble Program
We have an established string ensemble as an elective program for students from Kindergarten to Year 2. This program provides both ensemble experience and the opportunity for individual instruction. To assist parents getting started, we have access to a discounted hire and/or purchase program for string instruments taking the worry and expense out of choosing your child's first instrument.

Transition to Year 3
We understand the importance of developing not only an early childhood focus, but also a complete K-6 Perspective, including transition between Pre-School and Kindergarten and Year 2 to Year 3. We are committed to supporting the transition process to whichever local school you are zoned for Year 3.



Teacher availability
As we acknowledge and value the importance of regular parent communication , all staff are available for a quick chat in the playground for 15 minutes each afternoon. This is a valuable oppotunity to engage with your child's teacher on an informal level.

From our experience we find that through regular conversations with your child's teacher issues and concerns can be managed effectivly. This is a community strategy that is unique to Australia Street!


Parent Involvement
We encourage parents to become actively involved in their children's educational programs through volunteering to assist with our daily reading program and other whole school activities. In addition to this we ask that parents consider taking on the role of class parent which assists in the organisation of class social activities, assists on school excursions and other parent initiatives throughout the school year.
