Our Campuses


What a child learns and experiences in their early years will have effects that last a lifetime.

At TSS Preparatory School we value early learning and pride ourselves on our reputable kindergarten program which follows a Reggio-inspired approach.
Children are inquisitive learners. We plan experiences to spark creativity and thinking in line with the boys’ interests and QLD Kindergarten Learning Guideline outcomes.

Boys can attend TSS Preschool Full Time – 5 days per week term time, or Part Time – 5-day fortnight. As an accredited centre, for eligible families, the fee for attending the TSS Preschool Program will attract the Child Care Subsidy.

Our specialist knowledge in the education of boys sees our kindergarten program focus directly on their needs. Changes to the National Curriculum means that more than ever before it is important that all children have the best possible start to their educational journey. Boys who participate in a quality kindergarten program, taught by qualified and passionate teachers, enjoy a flying start to learning and life.

Neuroscience shows that early experiences impact brain development more than genetics. Nurture trumps nature. Meaning a positive learning environment is crucial, along with nourishing and stimulating parenting
