Early Learning

It is in the first years of life that young children develop a sense of themselves and their place within the community of learners. In our Early Learning Centres, our focus is on:

  • the practice of relationships
  • strengthening the processes of learning
  • developing positive dispositions to learning

Each of these aspects provides a strong foundation for later success and accomplishment in both academic and social worlds.

Our educators believe that childhood is celebrated as a time to play and to participate in the rich cultural and religious traditions of the Jewish Community. We create ‘slow time’ and a 'home away from home' where children, educators, and families learn new things together.  The focus is on process rather than product and on building respect for self, others and the environment.

Our Early Learning Centres are the entry point into Moriah College and as such provide a unique contribution to the College mission statement.

Moriah College aspires to achieve excellent academic standards by promoting the intellectual, spiritual, moral, social and physical development of the students. We strive to foster critical thought, cultural interests, tolerance, social responsibility, and self-discipline. The total development of all our students remains our overall concern – helping them to proudly realise their full potential as Jews and as Australians.
