Facilities

We are very fortunate at Canberra Christian School to have well maintained school grounds which enable teachers to use both inside and outside locations to extend students learning.

Each classroom is well resourced and with ample space to enable students to work comfortably and move around freely. We have excellent ICT facilities including computers, iPads and ICT equipment which is freely available in each classroom.

The outdoor learning areas allow children to have access to excellent equipment and natural environments during lessons, recesses and playtimes.
The school is conveniently situated in a residential area in Mawson two kilometers from the Woden Shopping Centre.

Campus

Early Learning Centre

Canberra Christian School built an Early Learning Centre (ELC) which opened in late 2014. We welcome all inquiries and have applications for children aged two, three and four.

The ELC is staffed by qualified Early Childhood teachers with assistants as per government regulations. Children at the ELC will experience the wider community at the school and participate in whole school events such as assembly and concert nights.

The ELC operates 5 days per week 50 weeks a year – 8:00am to 6:00pm. The daily fee is $97.  The fees include all meals (morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and later afternoon tea), language and music.  We have a Long Day Care License so that parents have access to the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR).

Pre-Kindergarten

Currently Canberra Christian School offers a Pre-Kindergarten program for 4 year old children five days a week.  Children can access the ELC hours of 8am – 6pm and the Pre-Kindy program runs within the center from 9.30am- 3pm each day.

Primary School

Our primary school facilities include generously sized classrooms and specialist learning areas, surrounded by spacious play areas and attractive grounds that provide a secure environment for our students. We are also fortunate to have a well-stocked library covering a comprehensive range of fiction and non-fiction titles, computer stations in all classrooms, class sets of iPads as well as a well-equipped early learning classroom. To cater to the well-being of our students we provide a healthy vegetarian canteen and specialist playground areas that enable children to integrate into the wider school environment at an appropriate level.
