Term Dates

Kindergarten generally operates to the school term dates set by the Department of Education and Early Childhood.

Starting kindergarten
  • Interview day: Parent and child attend for an hour. Interviews are conducted in small groups with the opportunity for confidential discussion if required. The children are able to choose their bathroom peg and play both indoors and outside, supervised by the co-educator.
  • Staggered sessions: a modified timetable operates for the first week. Only half the class attends each session and times are shorter to allow the children time to adjust to the full program.
