2024 Session Times

Our 4 year old program is a 15-hour rotational group which runs Monday to Thursday. To ensure the rotational model is feasible a limited number of children per group are allocated (groups Red, Blue, Yellow, Purple). Teachers will endeavour to do their best to accommodate your preferences.


As of 2024, we will be offering 10 hours per week for our 3 year old program over 3 days (two 2.5 hours sessions and one 5 hours session).
