Building strong foundations begins in Prep

At Moranbah State School we recognise the importance of each child as unique in their learning needs. The Prep Year provides continuity between the children’s prior experiences and their future learning.
We pride ourselves in providing all Prep students’ with opportunities to make decisions, solve problems, develop thinking skills, collaborate, communicate and develop a positive sense of self. Our well balanced programs develop the skills, knowledge and understandings, reflected in the principles of the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines and the Australian Curriculum.
