KIDS School provides full-time schooling for students aged from pre-school to 18+ years. A student’s Individual Education Programme is designed to meet Outcomes in each Learning Areas as described in the Curriculum Framework. The course is registered, but not monitored, by the Curriculum Council and leads to the School’s Graduating Certificates. Courses can be arranged in preparation for any external certificate studies, such as the West Australian TEC or entry to TAFE, according to the student’s capabilities.
Open Learning is a way of learning where students have input in to the development of their curriculum, timetabling and tutors.
It is child-centred, ungraded learning at its best — different in some ways from other alternative education such as Montessori, Steiner / Waldorf, Home Schooling and Summerhill, but with many important similarities.
We feel close ties with Fitzroy Community School in Melbourne, Sudbury in USA and Reggio Emilia Schools in Italy.
