Learning Environment

In the Junior years (P-2) the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework is used to plan investigations approach to learning.

At Brighton Beach, the comprehensive curriculum is ensures a strong emphasis on the development of literacy and numeracy skills across a range of applications. 

Programs are provided through a mix of classroom and specialist teaching and are well supported by our Library, Art and Music rooms, the Japanese program and extensive grounds.

Learning programs are active, relevant, engaging and purposeful, catering for individual needs and levels of development. These basic tenets are reflected in our integrated curriculum approach and in our commitment to access and equity for all students.

The school also operates on the premise that learning occurs all the time and close links need to be maintained with families to ensure optimum social and academic development. We are always looking for ways to improve our students’ learning to ensure it is meaningful.
