Prep at Livingstone Christian College

With a focus on developing an active and involved learner, our Prep program will build a strong foundation for your child to flourish.

Small class sizes enable connected learning for every student as key literacy and numeracy skills are developed. Each Prep class benefits from a dedicated teacher aide and air-conditioned classrooms. During break periods, there are dedicated outdoor play areas for our Prep students as they go through their first year at school.

At Livingstone we want to partner with families in helping their children flourish and seek to make a quality Christian education affordable for families on the Northern Gold Coast. As a part of our generous family discounts, there is no additional tuition fee charged for the third and subsequent children in each family enrolled at the College.
