TAS expands early learning services

TRINITY Anglican School (TAS) is expanding its Early Learning Centres (ELC) by introducing pre-kindergarten services at Kewarra Beach and White Rock campuses.

In 2024, TAS will add a pre-kindergarten year to its current ELC, offering children as young as two years old a head start with the opportunity to complete two years of early learning (pre-kindy and kindy) before transitioning to primary school.  

Construction is underway for two new state-of-the-art buildings, one for each of TAS’ White Rock and Kewarra Beach campuses.

They are scheduled for completion in the coming months to accommodate TAS’ first pre-kindergarten intake.   

TAS Principal Paul Sjogren said adding pre-kindergarten to the school’s outstanding resume and range of education services makes perfect sense. 

“TAS’ commitment to excellence in education extends to our youngest learners,” Mr Sjogren said.

“We understand the importance early childhood education plays in positively shaping a child’s trajectory, and because of this, TAS is thrilled to introduce pre-kindy for far northern families.”

According to Mr Sjogren, early education is closely linked to improved language and social skills that benefit the child and provide a smoother passage to school-based learning.

“From the early learner to the high school graduate, TAS prides itself on a holistic approach to education, providing innovative experiences that extend beyond academic achievement to a range of curricular opportunities developing social and emotional well-being,” he said.

TAS ELC has launched a recruitment drive to prepare for the first pre-kindergarten intake.

TAS’ Manager of Early Childhood Education and Care, Kelly Hart, said she is excited to invite applications from passionate and skilled early childhood educators to join TAS in its mission to provide exceptional early learning experiences. 

“In line with the future growth of our Early Learning Centres, we are committed to expanding our team of dedicated educators whose focus will be to nurture, guide and prepare children for a successful journey through school and beyond,” Ms Hart said.
