About Us

GEMS Preparatory School is a local, family business operated by Monique and Kent Vollprecht. They are parents to two children, Charlie is 12 years of age and Olive is 9. Monique is an Early Childhood and Primary teacher, having won an Excellence in Teaching Award whilst teaching at a prestigious Perth school. Kent is a Secondary teacher with nearly 20 years of teaching experience. GEMS has been operating in the South West region since 2006, first as a pre-kindy program and then into Long Day Care in 2010.

At Gems Prep School, we provide a developmentally appropriate Early Childhood Education program specifically designed for babies and children up to 5 years of age. Your child can expect to be involved in a variety of educational activities where the emphasis is on learning through play. Each child's interests, cultural and family background, needs and development help form the basis of our curriculum.

The teaching and learning program will consist of many learning centres that will evolve from the interests of the children. All children will be given the opportunity to make their own decisions as to which learning centre to explore. Activities will be hands on, with children able to manipulate, explore and learn through concrete materials. There will be a strong emphasis on both indoor and outdoor learning environments.

Opening hours in Dunsborough are 6.30am - 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.
