Prep to Year 3

In Prep – Year 3 at Eaton College, we provide a positive and inclusive learning environment for children with autism. The learning environment, supported by a teacher and teaching assistant, is designed to promote individual growth, provide support, and foster a sense of belonging so that every child can flourish.

Our teachers specialise in supporting our students by utilising strategies to nurture the social, emotional, and cognitive development of students. The Eaton Flourish program is aligned with the Australian Curriculum. We adjust the curriculum to suit the needs of our students. While fostering academic development, we focus on skills such as communication, social interaction, and self-regulation. We use visual aids, support sensory needs, and focus on individualised support plans to ensure each child’s progress and engagement within a calm and safe learning environment.

We believe that they key to the success of a student’s learning outcomes is a strong, positive partnership between home and school. As such, Eaton College works closely with families and other stakeholders to provide the best support to ensure the student is set up for success at school and in life.

Year 4 to 6

Years 4-6 at Eaton College aims to nurture the growth and development of students as learners. Building on what they learnt in Prep to Year 3, students in Years 4 to 6 demonstrate increased maturity and independence, engaging with the Australian curriculum.

Curriculum units are planned to integrate subject areas and general capabilities of the curriculum, providing students with a range of learning experiences that allow them to demonstrate skills and knowledge in a variety of ways.
