Enrolment Information

Yattalunga Valley Christian School (YVCS) recognises that all people are created uniquely and in the image of God, and are precious and valued in His sight; as such YVCS provides a caring Christian environment for students with Autism.
At YVCS we maintain a commitment to work in partnership with families to provide an individualised education plan for each student, using a mixture of one to one and small group instruction and support.  

Location: 

Yattalunga Valley Christian School is situated on the NSW Central Coast, within the grounds of Green Point Christian College, which has a strong history of inclusivity, catering for students with a variety of disabilities. While YVCS has its own dedicated space, there are many opportunities for students to make use of the facilities on site, including sporting, technology and creative arts. 

Christian Distinctive: 

Yattalunga Valley Christian School has a clear vision to honour Christ in all its programs and practices. Each staff member is a committed Christian who holds strongly to the belief that we are all created and loved by God. It is within this Christian environment that we nurture and train students to value and respect themselves and each other. 

Enrolment Eligibility for YVCS  

To enrol at YVCS, your child must have a primary diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (Level 1 or 2). This diagnosis is to be supported by a formal assessment and the report of diagnosis, from a Psychiatrist or Clinical Psychologist using the DSM-5, should include:  

- Evidence of persistent impairment in reciprocal social communication and social interaction, as well as restricted repetitive patterns of behaviour, interest and activities. 

- Information relating to diagnosis with or without cognitive impairment and with or without accompanying language impairment. 

- These indicators must be present from early childhood and limit or impair everyday functioning in a classroom, with impact on education, behaviour, or both. 

- The report of diagnosis must be no more than 2 years old at the time of enrolment. 

Children with multiple or co-occurring diagnoses will be considered provided their primary diagnosis is that of Autism Spectrum Disorder. 
Children entering Kindergarten to Year 2 at YVCS must be aged between 4 years and 6 months, and 7 years and 11 months, as of the 1st of February of the year of commencement at YVCS. 
As a small school, enrolment is dependent on an appropriate vacancy within a classroom being available. This ensures children are well-placed for success, with appropriate peers, and in a setting which best meets their needs. 

Please note that YVCS will only be catering for Kindergarten to Year 2 in 2022. Further stages will be considered for following years.
