At Regents Park State School, we believe in drawing on a variety of theories and perspectives in order to understand how children grow, behave, and think. We recognise that early school experiences of social interaction and relationships play a vital role in the development and growth of children. Our early years pedagogy is strongly influenced by sociocultural theory, which believes that children learn actively and through hands-on experiences. Through these interactions, learning becomes integrated into a child’s understanding of the world. We aim to work within a child’s ‘zone of proximal development’, by recognising what a child can do and when they require the help of more knowledgeable others.
Help give your child the best start to their schooling journey by getting the onto the Positive Pathway to Prep at Regents Park State School. By enrolling in Prep early the connection between home, school and education & care services are strengthened to best support your child and their positive transition to school. These transition opportunities will ensure that your child feels a part of their school before they even start.
