We’re excited to share our new timetable! We have revised our session times and are pleased to offer extended hours for our three year old kinder program in 2023 (increased to 10 hours).
The 3-year-old program will run across two days, with each child attending for 10 hours per week (5 hours per session). The 4-year-old program runs across three days (5 hours per session), with each child attending for 15 hours per week.
*Please note that this timetable is provisional and is still yet to be confirmed.
Session Times 2022
In 2022, the 3-Year-Old Program runs on a rotational basis, with each child attending for 5 hours per week. The children are divided into three groups –Bilby, Platypus and Wallaby (see table). Each child attends two out of the three session times, according to the colour group they are assigned (refer to your welcome pack). The 4-Year-Old Program also runs on a rotational basis, with each child attending for 15 hours per week. The children are divided into four groups – Acacia, Banksia, Cassinia and Correa (see table). Each child attends three out of the four session times, according to the colour group they are assigned (refer to your welcome pack).
We commence term one with a staggered start method. This gives the educators:
- time to get to know your child and listen to your child.
- time to be with a child who is not comfortable being left.
- time to encourage children to be aware of others and treat them with respect.
- time to explain age appropriate self-help skills.
- time to establish routines – e.g. bathroom, snack time, pack up time.
These staggered session times for your child are detailed on the orientation timetable included in your welcome pack.
