Classes and Sessions

Children can attend a variety and combination of both morning and afternoon sessions (dependent upon waiting lists). We recommend that children attend a minimum of three sessions (morning or afternoon) per week. This assists with the settling in process and helps children to become accustomed to the school routines quicker.

We provide children with morning tea. If your child has a special dietary requirement you may provide your own food. Children who are staying for lunch provide their own food (nuts and nut products are not allowed).
