Nestled in the heart of the Hunter Valley, our Prep offers a Christian early childhood environment, coupled with a Kindergarten readiness that only an on-site Prep class can provide.
At Narnia, we aim to provide an environment where all children can learn and feel confident in themselves as learners. We believe that all children have something to offer and that each one is of great value.
Our Prep program follows both the Early Year Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum and is presented as a progression of learning making for a seamless transition into school.
Our Early Learning Centre for children aged 0-4 years is still to be built. It will be situated on site at St Philip’s Christian College, Cessnock and will add to the continuity of learning experiences for young children as well as offering the very best in love, care and support for our precious little ones. We will keep you posted on progress.
We hope that you will join us on the early learning journey here at Narnia Cessnock and we look forward to meeting you.
Head of Early Childhood.
Meet Our Staff
Narnia staff are educated and experienced in Early Childhood education. We follow the Early Years Learning Framework to provide developmentally appropriate activities which are stimulating, challenging and creative and which cater for individual needs and interests. We provide flexible programs which promote self-discovery, spontaneous learning, independence and a positive self-esteem.
Our greatest aim is for all children to feel safe and secure in a loving Christian environment. This is the greatest entry point for learning.
I am an Early Childhood Teacher with many years’ experience teaching children in Pre-school, Prep and Early Learning centre programs as well as teaching school aged children from Kindergarten to year 4.
Early Childhood is a significant time in the development of the child as a person. Each one develops and matures at their own pace and will thrive in an environment where they feel safe and secure. I believe in creating environments where children feel a sense of belonging and are excited about learning. Every child is ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ and contributes something unique to this world.
