Welcome to Set 4 School - a unique learning place where children have fun, achieve success and develop confidence!
Set 4 School is a creative and innovative approach to learning and teaching that understands, provides for and encourages different learning styles.
Teaching strategies and learning experiences are multi-sensory, hands-on
concrete and active. All activities are meaningful, direct and focused.
Literacy, numeracy, social and emotional strategies and skills are explicitly taught.
The connection between a child's emotional and academic development
is understood and fostered. Circumstances that encourage and/or hinder
a child's learning are identified.
Families are supported and guided as each child's
individual learning needs are recognised and nurtured.
Learning and teaching is founded on the following principles:
Every child is precious, unique and individual
All children are capable learners and need high but realistic expectations
Each child has his/her own learning style
Each child has his/her own way of growing and developing
Every child can be a successful, confident and creative learner
All aspects of a child’s growth and development are equally important
Learning programs must consider each child’s individual characteristics
Learning programs must be developmentally appropriate
Parents are their child’s first and most important teachers
Located in Wakerley, Set 4 School was founded by and is owned and coordinated by local teacher, Heidi Smith.
