Prep to Year 6
Prep to Year 6
Recognised as at the forefront of primary education for girls across Melbourne, MLC delivers a Junior School experience that nurtures each student’s development, foundational learning, intellectual curiosity and holistic wellbeing.
Nestled within our beautiful Kew campus, MLC Junior School has multiple communal spaces and dedicated play and learning areas for our Prep – Year 2 and Years 3 – 6 students. We implement internationally recognised and evidence-based learning and wellbeing research and practices within a progressive curriculum that develops students’ curiosity and builds solid foundations in numeracy, literacy, STEAM, coding, leadership and entrepreneur skills. Furthermore, every student from Prep to Year 2 is given their own iPad, which plays a fundamental role in supporting their learning and discovery in the classroom. Then, from Year 3, students are provided with a notebook computer to further enhance the curriculum.
We identify the learning needs of our students and use adaptive teaching and learning programs to provide the best possible education for every individual child. Class teachers and Learning Support specialists work together to combine data from formalised testing, anecdotal evidence, and information from parents and carers to create a complete picture of each student, including their approaches to learning and academic, social and emotional needs.
Students discover and nurture their individual interests and talents through the diversity of our curriculum, including programs in Japanese, French, Education Outdoors and instrumental music. Our range of co-curricular activities is also one of the largest and most varied of any school in the country. This includes performing arts, music, dance, student clubs and over 18 sports on offer across the Junior School.
From the beginning we knew we wanted Alysha to be at a school that presented her many opportunities to explore in an encouraging environment. The teachers in Junior School are very nurturing, which is really important in helping build confidence in Alysha's learning so that she is ready to be the best she can be during her school life. She has established wonderful friendships with her teachers and peers, and found her passion for music and gymnastics.
