Children enrolled at age five will, at the end of Year 1, appropriate to their age and developmental level, be able to

  • Read independently and fluently.
  • Write full and correct sentences.
  • Add & subtract.

But that's just the beginning. Our curriculum fosters a love of learning and good work habits that will serve your child for years. We believe a strong foundation in the basics is essential, but we don't stop there. Our courses bring the breadth of God's world to life, encompassing the Bible, English, Mathematics, Science, Culture, Art, Music, and Physical Education. We believe in a well-rounded education that equips your child with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in all aspects of life.

The primary courses stress soundly teaching basic skills and knowledge. Children are trained to develop good work habits and the value of meeting standards of excellence.


Tyndale Park Phonics Programme

Here at Tyndale Park Christian School, we strongly emphasise teaching the foundational 'basics' well. We believe this provides the best platform for students to progress well in all future learning areas. Our claim to teach children to read within their first full year of schooling is only possible by utilising a phonics programme that teaches recognition of the written text with the sounds - rather than the names - of letters. A growing body of knowledge supports our position for widespread reading difficulties, which is evident in so many students today.

Over the years, Tyndale has adapted material from a number of various phonics programmes to produce a teaching programme that has proven extremely successful in teaching students to read well. We emphasise the assessment and teaching of constrained skills (i.e., phonological awareness, alphabetic coding skills, automaticity in word recognition) during the first year of formal schooling. In the early stages, it involves parents and teachers teaching and correcting the correct sounds, utilising various digital and physical resources. We are confident in our claim that all children can be taught to read well this way, and that is a huge advantage for them for the rest of their lives.
