Compass Model

Compass creates a place

where children feel valued,

have a sense of belonging and

can be uniquely themselves

A Small School

Designed intentionally as a small primary school, 

children are known and nurtured on their learning journeys

A Multi-Age Setting

Children from different year levels share learning spaces,

building a community of learners

Teaching Teams

A dedicated team of teachers facilitates learning,

sharing their expertise and

qualities with the children


Our Classes

Children spend several years in the one class,

alleviating year-on-year transitions and enabling continuity of learning

School Timetable

The timetable is flexible in nature and will vary with heat and weather


Compass Kids enjoy a minimum of one and a half hours of play a day

Break times for morning tea and lunch are additional to this


Compass values the role of parents, volunteers, and community partners to the child's learning journey and welcomes collaborations

No Homework or Uniform

Children wear clothing suitable for a highly active program, including a vest during outings

Compass respects family time and has chosen not to offer homework
