Early Years

The Early Years juncture at Hervey Bay Special School focuses on teaching and learning experiences that meet the individual needs of each student. Programs delivered by our Early Years teaching team include a large emphasis on communication, utilising the Communication Framework in conjunction with the Australian Curriculum and Extended General Capabilities.
Lessons concentrate on building students’ communication, literacy, numeracy, fine & gross motor and speech and language, all of which complement our units of work, providing students with multiple opportunities to succeed across varying learning areas.
Teachers support students learning through many educational opportunities such as our Community Based Learning experiences, which connects our school community to our local town and beyond. We encourage meaningful, student led and real-life learning, giving students’ control of their educational journey in a positive, engaging and highly individualised educational setting.

Early years teachers are dedicated to providing safe and supported learning environments that encourages student centred learning and foster relationships that build students’ social and emotional wellbeing.
