Santa Sabina Prep

Santa Sabina Prep is for girls and boys who will turn four years old by 30 June in their Prep year. 

We offer two-, three- or five- day programs from 9:00am – 3:00pm during the school term.

Out of School Hours care (OOSH) is available for Prep students who are five years old and above.

Our community 

Joining the Santa Sabina Community means you and your child become part of the local and global Dominican family. It is about being known and valued as individuals whose gifts are recognised and interests are fostered. As a Dominican family, communication is critical; challenges are shared, achievements are celebrated, and we seek joy and gratitude in every day events. 

Our program 

Our Prep Year children engage in rich, holistic learning experiences that address Early Stage One Learning Outcomes. As an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) school, our approach to early education is inquiry-based and child-centred. We are committed to supporting the cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of each child. 

The children engage in early Stage 1 learning experiences in reading, writing and mathematics. With a sound introduction to fundamental literacy and numeracy, our Prep students are prepared for school with a solid foundation and love of learning. Hands-on exploration and experiences across several disciplines enable our children to become independent learners with global awareness.

Specialist classes and services

Our students experience specialist lessons in Music, Japanese, Art and Physical Education and have access to the College’s onsite Specialist Services in Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy.
