Full Day Integrated Kindergarten
Our Quality Full Day Integrated Kindergarten Program is designed to be flexible and responsive to individual and groups of young children within the community. Session times of longer duration can be designed with a mixture of more active and quieter experiences offered throughout the day, to allow children the opportunity to rest and recharge as they need to, while still presenting an engaging and stimulating learning environment.
This program will provide eligible children up to two years of extended hours kindergarten. These additional hours of learning provide greater capacity for our bachelor qualified teachers to expand on topics of interest and further extend each child’s learning and development.
Children turning four by the 30th of April in the year of attendance:
- Who enrol for a minimum of two days and
- Nominate this program as their funded kindergarten year
Children turning three by the end of the first week of January in the year of attendance:
- Who nominate this program as their three-year-old kindergarten year

The Integrated Kindergarten Program will be offered Monday to Friday 7am – 6pm for the full year except for two weeks over new year period. Exact service closure dates are provided in August of each year.
This program sits within the suite of our long day care programs. A daily fee is charged and the Child Care subsidy (CCS) is applied for eligible families with the daily gap fee payable.
