Term Dates

Kindergartens are open for 4 terms per year and are closed for two weeks, three times a year and for approximately five weeks over Christmas/New Year. This is similar to the school year.
The term breaks allow teachers to undertake professional learning, plan for the next term and complete administrative tasks. It also allows for the completion of any maintenance work or projects. No fees are charged during Term Breaks.  We run a  holiday programme over the term break with limited spaces available.
