The Early Stages of Learning – Transition Years

On entering the exciting world of the Early Learning Centre (ELC) in Bellevue Hill, each boy is an active discoverer of his new world.

A unique, colourful and adventurous curriculum leads our youngest Scots boys along the beginning of their Scots ELC learning pathway in the Cubs (3 year old) and Lions (4 year old) transition programs.

Harnessing a boy’s natural curiosity and energy, these programs are informed by Reggio Emilia principles and encourage each boy to explore and discover his world.

Starting Formal Schooling Kindergarten to Year 1

As they move through to Kindergarten and Year 1, this paves the way for more formal schooling with writing, spelling and numeracy. It is within this phase that the five pillars for literacy learning are formed – phonemic awareness, systematic phonics, vocabulary, reading fluency and comprehension. As the boys’ enthusiasm to learn increases so does their potential.

Mr Alan Elder was born in Scotland and migrated to Australia with his parents at a young age. He attended The Scots College for all his schooling, graduating in 1944. He played 1st XI Cricket and was a member of the College Cadet Unit. After leaving school Mr Elder studied accountancy and retained a life-long love of the College, especially the Pipes and Drums. Mr Elder never married, however the significant bequest he left will allow his Scots family to remember him through the Lang Walker Business Centre.
