Special Programs
CARE Program

All our students learn about courtesy, attitude, resilience and excellence through our Bible-based CARE program.

Your child will receive Bible-based foundations and consistent values and morals.

CHUMS Program

Year Five students partner with our “littlies” as big brothers and sisters to help them negotiate their early school experiences through our CHUMS programs.

Perceptual Motor Program (PMP)

Available in Prep and Year 1, the program offers students experiences in seeing, hearing, touching, processing and making perceptual judgments. 

The program focuses on four main motor outcomes; Balance, Locomotion, Eye/Hand/Foot Coordination and Fitness. Through participation in the program students are given opportunities to problem solve, develop fundamental sports skills, improve memory and develop awareness of the world they live in. 

Students participate in activities involving jumping, skipping, balancing, crawling, climbing, throwing, catching or bowling. These skills are essential for students to function effectively in the world around them. 

Coding 

Northside Christian College Prep students learn the foundations in coding by using Bee-Bots. Small, bee-shaped robots teach students the fundamentals of computational thinking. Students problem solve in a fun environment by programming up to 40 commands consisting of forward, backwards, left and right movements to maneuver around the floor.

Reading Eggs

Students receive access to ABC Reading Eggs to supplement their classroom learning with one-on-one learning in home environment. Parents can tract their child's progress that suits their ability by building core literacy skills.
