Kindergarten to Year 2 Overview – Early Childhood

Early Childhood Education comprises classes from kindergarten through to Year Two. At Bullsbrook College we offer an engaging and innovative education aimed at developing the intellectual, social, physical and emotional development of each child. We are committed to the wellbeing and care of the individual in a safe, supportive environment where excellence is encouraged and risk taking pursued. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), the Western Australian Kindergarten Curriculum guidelines and the Western Australian Curriculum underpin all our programs.

We recognise the early years as being critically important in terms of building valuable foundations for future learning. We place an emphasis on social emotional development. By explicit teaching, modelling and providing meaningful experiences, students are equipped with the skills to understand their emotions and interact successfully with others.

We place a strong focus on the explicit and intentional teaching of strong foundational literacy and numeracy skills. We inspire our students to become strong, capable learners, who are actively involved within their learning and never stop asking questions.

We recognise that play is essential for early learning and is best supported by meaningful interactions with educators. Play provides a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. 

Fostering strong partnerships with parents is integral in supporting the learning of children which also builds agency for each child as they begin their journey in education.


Year 3 to Year 6 Overview – Middle and Upper Primary

The focus in 3-6 is taking the foundational skills learned in early childhood and apply them across all learning areas. Students are given increased responsibility for managing and organising their learning. They are encouraged to become more independent and to develop their ability to work collaboratively through planned and meaningful activities that require sustained focus, interaction and decision making.

There is an expectation that students will reflect on their learning and work practices and consider ways in which these might be improved or expanded on for each learning area and audience. In Years 3-6 there is a strong emphasis on students making sense of the world around them and being able to problem solve effectively across the learning areas, using the WA Curriculum.

The middle and upper primary school program at Bullsbrook College continues to embed strong literacy and numeracy skills whilst expanding on the specialist subjects provided.  Students in years 3 – 6 will experience a more integrated curriculum as learning areas such as HASS and English, and maths and science complement each other well.


Specialist Subjects offered Year 1 – 6 include:
  • Science
  • Physical education
  • Visual Art
  • Music and performing arts
  • Languages: Indonesian
