Leap into Learning is Carlton Primary School’s pre-prep program. The intention for Leap into Learning, is to build a solid base of positive learning behaviours to support students beginning their school life. We are aware that many children in the local area miss out on kindergarten, and we sought funding through Schools Plus to run and evaluate a program here at school. The results were very encouraging, leading us to commit to running it each year.
Leap in to Learning runs in term 3 and term 4, two half days per week. The class is limited to 13 students, and is taught by a teacher with support from an assistant.
Our Leapers get the opportunity to become familiar with the school environment, to practice all the behaviours and skills that form a solid foundation to the important learning that happens at school.
