The Early Entry Program at Mosman Prep provides an exciting first step on a boy’s educational journey.  This comprehensive pre-Kindergarten experience develops thinking skills, confidence and enthusiam for learning through a range of structured activities, guided exploration and free play.  There is particular emphasis on language development, social skills, and the arts, building a strong foundation for Kindergarten.  Parent education and family-based activities are an additional feature of the program.

Early Entry is a pre-Kindergarten class for mature pre-school boys.  The curriculum in the Early Entry class is based on a developmentally appropriate application of the Board of Studies Early Stage One Foundation Statements and Early Stage One Outcomes.  For example, there is a strong emphasis on the Talking and Listening strands for English.  Early Entry boys are not expected to achieve mastery of reading outcomes, but they are introduced to a full range of pre-reading skills and understandings.  All the Key Learning Areas are addressed through a combination of explicit teaching, guided exploration, and free exploration.
