Our purpose-built Pre-Prep Centre in Coopers Plains is a short drive from our Primary School Campus and is part of the
Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program. We offer an educational play-based program for children
three years to school age with engaging facilities, caring staff and a spacious, exciting outdoor play area.
Our Kindergarten program offers children the chance to experience the joy of childhood while gaining skills that will build confidence, assist them in their overall development, and encourage them to grow and thrive.
We promote learning through play, as well as through planned activities and interactions.
We work alongside families to provide high-quality education and care within a warm, caring
and secure environment.

From our Head of Pre-Prep
In Pre-Prep our play-based program supports children’s learning, development and wellbeing. Children are engaged in quality learning experiences in a loving and caring environment. Each child is a unique individual and their abilities, interests and cultural backgrounds are the basis for our curriculum.
Our children feel loved and secure as they explore, discover, create and problem solve. Pre-Prep’s inclusive environment allows children to be engaged in dynamic, creative and innovative experiences which enables children to develop and connect to their natural world. Our outdoor spaces have recently been redesigned with an emphasis on exploration and nature. The welcoming play environment reflects the children’s lives and supports their physical, social, emotional and cognitive needs.
We look forward to meeting your family and building a relationship with you.
Mrs Zilea Simpson
Head of Pre-Prep
Life Early Learning Centre
In early 2022, Life Church opened Life Early Learning Centre on our Pre-Prep campus in Coopers Plains! A new 60-place Christian Long Day Care Service which supports families with children 6 weeks of age to Kindy. Children will be nurtured and equipped in a Christian environment through play-based learning which fosters a sense of belonging and confidence.
