'Natural inquisitiveness, imagination and the development of success oriented principles provide the fundamental objectives to the Prep curriculum.'

Rivermount College is excited to offer a Prep year for students that provides a strong foundation for future years of education and encourages a genuine love of learning. 

A child’s first experiences at school are among the most important in their life. Therefore, in a safe and secure environment, student’s natural curiosity, imagination and creativity are fostered. 

It is an aim of the Prep year to ensure that each students' natural learning continues on a daily basis and that their knowledge base is constantly extended and challenged.

The Prep year provides a smooth transition into the formal years of schooling by providing a stimulating and dynamic environment where students are able to learn and develop new skills in readiness for Year 1 and their future years of schooling.

Students in the Prep year are an important part of the Junior School community and are able to participate in all aspects of school life. Opportunities exist for students to attend regular weekly assemblies, participate in the College sporting and co-curricular programs and attend specialist lessons. 

As members of the Junior School, Prep students are required to attend during normal school hours and adhere to the College Code of Behaviour and the College Uniform Code.
