Dubbo Christian School is committed to nurturing young men and women in a biblical foundation. The early childhood section of our school is no exception as carefully planned teaching and learning experiences strengthen a rich foundation between home and school for three and four year old students prior to entry into Kindergarten. Each planned experience is carefully scripted by our highly trained Early Childhood Education experts based on outcomes from the departmental Early Years Learning Framework. In this environment students are taught about the life of Jesus and his teaching for everyone ‘to love one another’. In this way Jesus is made known to the very youngest of our students and hope is implanted at a very early age.

Our early childhood education unit is situated in close proximity to the K-2 section of Dubbo Christian School. This enables PREP students to participate in appropriate community and Kindergarten experiences which assist in preparation for the formal education setting in Early Stage One known as Kindergarten. Likewise, valuable information about each student is recorded and conveyed to future educators.

The National Quality Standard (NQS) is a key aspect of the National Quality Framework (NQF) and sets a high, national benchmark for early childhood education and care, and outside school hours care services in Australia. The DCS pebbles and PREP program has been approved by the Department of Community Services since 2014 as having achieved an overall rating of Meeting NQS.
