A life-long love of learning
As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, Wesley College offers enormous opportunities for students to find their voice, develop their talents, ignite their passions and inspire meaning in their lives. Recently, the ECLC at Wesley College’s Elsternwick Campus has been awarded the highest rating of ‘Exceeding’ national standards by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
The Early Childhood Learning Centre (ECLC) offers a nurturing environment for early learners aged three to four within a larger school setting. Combining the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme with the Reggio Emilia approach of guided learning through play, our 3- and 4-year-old ECLC builds your child’s confidence and a lifelong love of learning.
We are immensely proud to achieve an ‘exceeding’ result in all seven quality areas, reflecting the depth and quality of our program across all three Wesley College campuses.
Our highly qualified ECLC teachers create individual learning plans for every child. These are regularly refined in consultation with families, based on progress, interests, abilities and needs. Your child will learn through exploring the things they love – from STEM skills through coding bee-bots through to numeracy and developing social and emotional skills. Your child will feel confident about ‘big school’ with a guaranteed Prep place in our highly sought-after Junior School.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) learning pathway continues throughout the Junior School with students encouraged to explore ‘big ideas,’ and the world around them with cross-disciplinary inquiry.
Whether problem-solving through experimentation and investigation, creating in music, visual arts, dance and drama, or learning a new language, your child will enjoy many opportunities to develop their talents, discover their passions and try new things. To learn more about the exceptional opportunities available to students in the Wesley College Junior School, join us at a forthcoming Campus tour and meet staff, students and teachers.
