Shaping futures with heart and excellence

​​At Mater Dei, we believe the early years are about more than just learning; they are a time of exploration, growth, and joyful discovery. Our Prep program is designed to nurture your child's natural curiosity and ignite a love for learning. In our engaging and dynamic environment, every activity is an opportunity to inspire and stimulate young minds.

​Our Early Years Educators are passionate about guiding our students through a variety of enriching experiences. Through hands-on activities, storytelling, creative play, and interactive lessons, we build a strong foundation in literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking skills. Each day is filled with moments that encourage your child to ask questions, solve problems, and discover new interests.

Hear from our community​

​One of the most significant aspects we've observed since enrolling at Mater Dei is the holistic growth of our daughter. Not only has she advanced academically, also grown in her ability to develop friendships, navigate problems and show confidence at school. Her love for sporting activities such as cross country, has also been supported through before-school training opportunities and the opportunity to attend Zones competitions. 

The emphasis on values is commendable; the 'Caritas' award, symbolising kindness, and compassion, stands out as the most coveted award among students, highlighting the school's commitment to instilling core human values over mere academic achievements. At Mater Dei, it's not just about academics; it's about nurturing well-rounded individuals. We are proud to be part of this community and look forward to more years of growth and enrichment.​
