A play-based approach in Early Years education appeals to the natural curiosities of children, giving them the best start to a life filled with creativity, learning and growth.
Each day is full of opportunities to learn through play.
Students experience their learning through hands-on activities designed for young learners, discovering concepts and building their understanding in a supportive environment.

St Stephen’s School uses the Early Years Framework Belonging, Being and Becoming where providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for students to try new things and form positive relationships with classmates and teachers, is at the forefront of school life.
Classrooms are our students’ base for learning, but their days also see them create and discover in the outdoors, using our nature play areas, bush school settings and other areas across our campuses to learn in an open-air environment. Our students also take part in age-appropriate camps, with Year 1s and 2s boosting their confidence away from home with a special sleepover at School with friends.
St Stephen’s School recognises the importance of Early Years education in establishing firm foundations for your child’s life; academically, socially and spiritually. We embrace the diversity of our student community and offer learning enrichment and support tailored to students’ needs and interests.
