Early Learning to Year 4
McMillan House caters for children from early learning to year 4 in a friendly, caring environment.
Whether it is holding a birthday party to celebrate the twentieth birthday anniversary of popular children’s book Possum Magic by Mem Fox or taking on a formal leadership role in year 4, children are encouraged to share their views with each other and take pleasure in living, learning and discovering.
Assemblies, playground games, cross age tutoring and special 'whole College' activities mean that the children and staff in McMillan House are known to each other and a happy, industrious environment is created.
A variety of specialist staff are involved in McMillan House, including a librarian, music
, art and physical education teachers, school counsellor, special education teacher, a reading recovery
teacher and a specialist language teacher (LOTE).
The philosophy which underpins the St Leonard's College’s Early Learning Centres
at St Leonard's College is inspired by the system of early years education described as ‘world’s best practice’ and named Reggio Emilia.
